Inside the Daily Show’s interactive ‘Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library’ at SXSW 2019

The library, set up at the appropriately-regal Driskill Hotel in Austin, leads festival goers through an interactive experience of Donald Trump's most memorable tweets.

AUSTIN, Texas — It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is an avid Twitter user.

There are enough of those 280-character notes to make a “presidential library” of sorts. And for 2019 South by Southwest Conference & Festivals badge-holders, they can peruse through some of Trump’s most impactful – perhaps most comical – tweets at The Daily Show’s “Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library."

The library, set up at the appropriately-regal Driskill Hotel in Downtown Austin, leads festival goers through an interactive experience. Although this marks the Presidential Twitter Library’s debut at SXSW, the event has rolled through five different cities including Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City.

President Trump's most retweeted tweets of 2018

KVUE got a preview of the “Presidential Library” before it opened to the rest of the festival-goers on March 9.

Trump is known to give nicknames to fellow politicians. Displayed at the activation were caricatures of politicians such as “Low Energy Jeb” and “Lyin’ Ted.”

Below that display are iPods that let festival-goers generate their own “Trump nickname.”

Beyond the nickname generator are displays which feature some of Trump's most memorable tweets.

Trevor Noah, The Daily Show's host, spoke along with other cast members at a session later on in the day.

"A lot of people get swamped by his tweets, but I think this will give you a new perspective," Noah said at the session.

If you're a badge-holder who'd like to see what the "Presidential Library" has in store, you have until March 11 to stop by. Click here for more information.
