Twitter Employee Deleted Donald Trump's Account On Their Last Day At Work
For eleven minutes @RealDonaldTrump came to a standstill.
Twitter have announced that one of their employees was behind Donald Trump's Twitter profile vanishing for a solid eleven minutes on the evening of November 2nd.
The President has never been to leave his profile in the hands of a trusted social-media team, and it's fair to say that his uploads have often been controversial and unpredictable.
Let's all get checking out an update from MTV News...
Even so, social-media users were left scratching their heads when a "sorry that page does not exist" message popped up on the @RealDonaldTrump profile at 6:45 p.m. ET.
Initially, Twitter responded by announcing the account had been "deactivated due to human error" before releasing a follow-up statement to reveal what actually went down in those eleven minutes.
According to the company, Trump's account was disabled "by a Twitter customer-support employee who did this on the employee's last day" with an "investigation" having been opened into the incident.
While a bunch of people saw the funny side of the situation and proclaimed the mystery social-media worker a "folk hero," others pointed out that the situation could have been potentially damaging.
It wasn't long before Trump's account was restored to full activity, with the President saying "a rogue employee" was behind his suspension. "I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact," he responded.
Since the incident was resolved, Trump has already tweeted about Hilary Clinton, a tax cut roll out, campaign finance laws, James Comey's leadership, the FBI, and an upcoming interview with Fox News.
