President-elect Donald Trump is an avid Twitter user. But a poll released on Tuesday shows that the majority of American voters think he should log off.

Quinnipiac University conducted a study that resulted in 59 percent of the respondents saying that Trump should delete his Twitter account now that the election is over.

Fifty-two percent of respondents said he is not honest, 57 percent say he is not level-headed, but 59 percent are optimistic about his presidency.

Aside from press conferences, rallies, and interviews, Trump has used Twitter as a platform to attack Hillary Clinton, throw shade at President Obama, and voice his opinion on the economic status of the United States.

But don’t expect President-elect Trump to ease up on the Twitter fingers anytime soon.
