Twitter Employee Shuts Down Trump's Account on Last Day of Work

Some wondered if Trump had been suspended for violating Twitter's terms of service, which many people have been calling for.

The account, which has more than 41 million followers, was restored after just 11 minutes, and Twitter says it's conducting an internal review.

Twitter said they were continuing to investigate the mishap and were working to make sure it didn't happen again.

President Trump's Twitter account went dark for a short time on Thursday evening in what the company described as "human error" by an employee.

And @deray tweeted: "I hope that the lives of the existing Twitter employees don't become harder as the result of the one person deactivating Trump's account".

Donald Trump's Twitter account has been deleted.

German officials: Iran working to build nuclear-armed missiles
But he placed the onus on Congress to add new terms not covered by the JCPOA, including sunset clauses and ballistic missiles. This is particularly disturbing in light of the volatile standoff between the United States and nuclear-armed North Korea .

Harlan Z. Hill, an advisory board member for Donald J. Trump for President, and actor James Woods also expressed concern over the incident, while others used the opportunity to call for the decentralization of the internet.

In June, Trump tweeted remarks aimed at MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski: "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore)".

Twitter's government and elections team initially issued a statement on the incident Thursday night. "Bought and paid for by Crooked H.", Trump's tweet read. But he insists on tweeting - spelling errors included - as a weapon against "fake news".

With any past president, a tweet like that would immediately be assumed as the result of some sort of hack.

The focus on Trump's status on the site intensified during a war of words with North Korean leadership last month, during which he tweeted that if the country's foreign minister "echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"
