I like the idea, maybe there's another way to put the fake tweets together? Most of the fake tweets are easy to pick out because they're not coherent.

Cool idea! I love the design of the page. Simple but works really well imo. Maybe you could add a little padding for the top menu (home, about).
Also I agree with meg. Right now it is too easy to pick out fake tweets. They don't follow Trumps rhythm of speech or simply don't make sense. Maybe it would be better to have hand-written tweets to make it harder to distinguish.

Really interesting concept, and I liked that you included links to the real tweets used. Same issue other people had, in that it was really easy to spot the fake ones -- but you're going to run into that with someone who is as iconic in terms of his speech. If you continue working on this, I think it would be interesting to have a few pre-crafted fake tweets mixed in with the nonsense garbled ones to really throw people off.

Interesting concept! And for a non-english speaker is sometimes hard to guess what is true and what is fake!
