President Trump's Twitter account was deactivated yesterday.
Immediate reaction from all sides... and the initial response from Twitter?
Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee. The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again.— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
So later, we learn it WASN'T an accident...
Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review. https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
For 11 minutes, the Twitterverse went crazy...
(Btw, I'm only sharing some of the tamer ones)
