A Twitter Employee Deleted Donald Trump's Twitter Account

The account was quickly restored. @GOPPollAnalyst wrote: "Why does a Twitter customer support employee have enough access to delete the President of the United States account?"

A disgruntled Twitter employee de-activated President Trump's personal Twitter account for roughly 11 minutes on November 2, 2017. But you can bet the company will be looking internally at ways to ensure it doesn't happen again, no matter how justified the action may seem.

US President Donald Trump's Twitter account inadvertently deactivated on Thursday due to Twitter employee's mistake.

Twitter users can also deactivate their own accounts. Anyone visiting his Twitter profile was met with the standard "account suspended" page. And he has used Twitter in office like no president before him (and maybe no president who comes after him will). Twitter said it would be conducting a full internal review.

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)".

- Security concerns -"It is shocking that some random Twitter employee could shut down the president's account".

Early Friday, Trump's Twitter page showed inaccurate information - a mere 5,809 followers, even dwindling down to 4,202 at one point. Accounts violating that rule may be subject to a temporary or permanent suspension, Twitter warns.

The Trump Twitter takedown comes on the same week that lawyers for the largest social media companies in the world were on Capitol Hill talking about their efforts to combat the spread of misinformation. "Bought and paid for by Crooked H.", Trump's tweet read.

A spokesperson for the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment. He has tweeted more than 36,000 times.
