For around eleven minutes before the 7 PM ET hour struck yesterday, President Donald Trump’s Twitter account was deactivated for no apparent reason. Searching for The Donald by his handle @realDonaldTrump resulted in the following error page.


The incident quickly picked up steam across the web, and in response, Twitter brought the President back up online.

Later, the social media platform performed an investigation into the incident and determined it was the result of human error by an employee on the employee’s last day.

Right now, more extensive details remain absent as to how the deactivation of Trump’s Twitter account was performed, but we’ll let you know if more information hits our news desk.

The President responded to the incident by saying “the word must be getting out – and having an impact.”
