President Donald Trump’s Twitter account disappeared for a brief moment on Thursday afternoon, but it’s back and running, according to the company.
Shortly before 7:00 pm on Thursday, reports on the social network indicated that the personal account of the president, @realDonaldTrump, was not available anymore. They noted that when the user tried to entered a message , a response came back saying “Sorry, that user does not exist.” However we learned that President Trumps “go to” Forum, aka “Twitter”, was restored around 7:03 pm.
Twitter admitted being responsible for the problem
In a statement, the company said Trump’s account was “inadvertently disabled due to a human error” committed by one of its employees. The account was deactivated for 11 minutes.
