Donald Trump’s Phone Could Be A National Security Crisis - BuzzFeed News

Also see Donald Trump says his tweeting as president will be ‘very restrained,’ even as he trolls the New York Times today (Recode); tangentially, I think it's time to #BoytcottTwitter (a tag you can of course track ... on Twitter)

"But if there’s one thing Trump’s staff — whose boss’s addiction to tweeting is legend — can do immediately to improve the security of our nation, it is this: Secure his phone.
Yesterday, the president-elect met President Obama at the White House. The two are now privy to the exact same top-secret daily intelligence briefing. But while Obama communicates with a device built and configured with safety standards approved by the NSA, Trump is still firing away tweets from his personal account, from a device that may be an iPhone, may be an Android, or may — according to reports — be whatever device is closest at hand. And it is hardly a stretch of the imagination that Trump may be sending texts, emails, or any other conceivable type of electronic communication from this or these devices.
That means anyone who can hack whatever device Trump is using may be able to glean highly classified details about America’s national security."
