Donald Trump explained his love for Twitter this week.

During an interview that aired Wednesday night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked the real estate mogul whether he would still stay up in 1:00 a.m. on Twitter if elected president.

“Well, probably a little bit less, but I’ll tell you, it’s pretty amazing. I do get my point across,” Trump said in response. “For years, if somebody did bad stuff to me, I couldn’t fight back. Now I have @realDonaldTrump, and I can sort of tweet some bad stuff about them. And if people like it, it’s all over the world.”

Trump, who is notorious for using his Twitter account to criticize his enemies, has been using social media to attack his opponents in the presidential race. Most recently, he has used Twitter to bash Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), with whom he has been bickering since last week’s GOP debate.
