On the eve of President Donald Trump's 100th day in office, Twitter has revealed the top moments that have happened since he came to power on January 20th.

Prolific tweeter Trump has sent a whopping 486 tweets, including retweets in 99 days and his most commonly used words are, unsurprisingly, 'Great', 'America/American', 'News/Media', 'Jobs', 'Today', 'Fake News', 'Thank', 'People', 'Big', and 'Country'.

His obsession with the media is clear given the most tweeted @handles from his account are @Whithouse, @NYTimes and @foxandfriends, followed by @FoxNews, @VP, @CNN and @POTUS.

He's also fond of a hashtag with his most popular being #MAGA, #AmericaFirst, #ICYMI, #USA, and #Obamacare

His most RT'd tweets since being elected are an interesting mix with several references to his ban on Muslims entering the US from selected countries.

His most retweeted tweets of all time see him taking pops at former US President Barack Obama, fellow presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and, ironically, the electoral college. 

There's also that tweet from 2013 in which he declared, "Be prepared, there is a small chance that our horrendous leadership could unknowingly lead us into World War III" the irony of which is also not lost on anyone familiar with recent events...

1.   January 20th - Inauguration

2.   January 28/29 - Trump signs ‘travel ban’ executive order

3.   January 25 - Trump signs ‘border wall’ executive order

4.   February 16 - Trump holds eventful press conference

5.   February 9 - Controversy over Conway saying “go buy Ivanka’s stuff”
