Outgoing Twitter worker responsible for Trump account outage

Trump's Twitter account temporarily disappeared

@GOPPollAnalyst wrote: "Why does a Twitter customer support employee have enough access to delete the President of the United States account?" The reason this happened? During the brief 11-minute period many thought his account was suspended but Twitter later reported his account was "inadvertently deactivated due to human error." and they were investigating the matter. It doesn't seem like for swaths of Twitter users who were over the moon to have a short (11 minutes) break from Donald's tweeting. SAD.

Trump did not tweet about his account's sudden disappearance.

Trump did not react on Twitter to the temporary removal of his account until almost 12 hours later. The account was restored by 7:03 p.m. What's less clear is if the company has tougher safeguards for taking action on higher-profile accounts, such as @realdonaldtrump - which Trump has been using since 2009 and now counts more than 41 million followers. We are 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)".

The first details from the official Twitter Government account made the incident look like an accident. Suspensions aren't uncommon on the site.

"This is real collusion and dishonesty", he said in a second tweet.

Trump has credited the social platform for helping him win the White House, but some close to the president reportedly worry that his prolific and often controversial tweeting could have dire consequences. "Bought and paid for by Crooked H.", Trump's tweet read. However, for the President's critics who have long called for Trump to be banned from the service, it is a small victory in a world that badly needs more of such things.
