Donald Trump's Twitter Account Goes Down for 11 Minutes, Twitter Explains What Happened

Donald Trump‘s Twitter account was temporarily deactivated on Thursday (November 2), but it was back up within minutes.

The social media app quickly released a statement explaining what happened.

“Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee,” the statement read. “The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again.”

The President resumed tweeting later that day without acknowledging what happened to the account.

UPDATE: Twitter clarified that an employee deactivated the account during their final day at the company.

    Human error… or… just possibly a “hero”? Not all heroes wear capes.
    (I’m sure members of both parties and his staff were glad to have a break from his unhinged rantings that just create more trouble and incidents)

    Can’t believe that Twitter was stupid enough to activate it again. The world was so happy to see it gone. Trump can have his Presidential account but don’t let him have his personal Twitter account anymore.
