Donald Trump’s approach to Twitter has not changed that much since he has become President. He has always used the social media site to vent his frustrations and air his gripes.

It's just now his subject matters have changed. While he used to rant about Diet Coke, Ebola, Katie Perry and his “haters”, he now shares convoluted conspiracies about the “fake news media” and warns Kim Jong-Un military solutions are “locked and loaded”.

One particularly random issue which the billionaire property tycoon used to regularly relish in ranting about, that is often forgotten, is Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's relationship.

“Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart,” Mr Trump tweeted back in October 2012. “She cheated on him like a dog and will do it again - just watch. He can do much better!”

Stewart and Pattinson’s relationship ended in 2013 after the release of the last Twilight film and after the actor was photographed kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, in the summer of 2012.

A lot might have changed in the four years since Mr Trump delighted in firing off tweets about the pair but Pattinson has now voiced his opinion on the furore.

When pressed about whether the tweets seemed “somewhat surreal” now Mr Trump is in the Oval Office, Pattinson told Entertainment Weekly: “I think there’s so many different levels of it. Your identity exists on many different planes at the same time and they all can be quite different from each other.”

He added: “Then he said that, it didn’t really mean anything. But I guess now I’m sort of thinking, like, ‘Well, I guess that is related to me.’ But how does that fit in with all the other things going on in my life? And sometimes you think, ‘Can I use this in my acting? Or should I be putting it away.’ It’s kind of interesting, I guess. I don’t know - this could be why people get annoyed with me.”

Earlier this year Stewart also responded to Mr Trump’s comments about their relationship, saying: “He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f***ing crazy.”

“I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane.”

In 2012, the former reality TV star imposed his own moral judgement on the situation on a number of occasions, never tiring of urging Pattinson to break off his relationship with her.

"After Friday’s Twilight release, I hope Robert Pattinson will not be seen in public with Kristen - she will cheat on him again!" he also weighed in.
