President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, @realdonaldtrump, disappeared from the site for around 11 beautiful minutes shortly before 7PM ET. It was not initially clear what happened to the account, and Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a series of tweets issued by Twitter’s Government and Elections team, the company first blamed “human error,” then attributed the move on a rogue employee who used their last day on the job to boot the president off the service.
During that brief time period, the president was unable to tweet insults, boasts, odd syntax, or misinformation about terrorism.
People were into it.
@jack I need to very seriously tell you that the 70 seconds that Trump’s twitter account went away were the happiest 70 seconds of my year.
