If you follow Donald Trump on Twitter because you like his straightforward tweeting style or just because you want to know what he has to say, you might not be happy with the latest happenings - his account has become much tamer in recent days.

It isn't because he is cutting back as Election Day approaches, but rather because his Twitter account has been taken hostage by his campaign staff members, according to the New York Times.

Trump continually gets into trouble with some of the things he says on Twitter, whether they are true or not. He uses the platform to rally his troops against Hillary Clinton. However, he has also said some negative things about Gold Star families and a former Miss Universe. Just last week, Jon Stewart laughed about a fight he got into with the Republican Nominee. His tweets have really been destructive to his campaign, and in order to prevent anything from getting out at the last minute, his press team has pulled his access to it.

He's now saying his tweets to staff members who can edit and censor his Tweets. The result has been somewhat stagnant tweets that lack personality and flair like many of his supporters like.

We know this because the staff tweets from an Apple phone, but Trump tweets from an Android. There hasn't been an Android phone tweeting since Thursday. 

President Obama has had some fun with the news as well, almost mocking him in a campaign speech in Florida “Apparently, his campaign has taken away his Twitter,” Obama said to laughs at a rally in Kissimmee, Fla. “In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, that they said, ‘We’re just going to take away your Twitter.’ Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear codes,” Obama said.
