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.

Speculations have already started

“We are continuing to investigate and we are taking measures to prevent this from happening again,” the statement pointed out very clearly.

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for  further comment when approached by CTN News.
