Twitter 'inadvertently' deletes Donald Trump's account
The president’s personal @RealDonaldTrump account disappeared around 11pm.
The Twitter account of President Donald Trump's was suspended on Thursday, but only for 11 minutes.
The president's personal @RealDonaldTrump account disappeared around 11pm, with an error message saying the user "does not exist."
The account quickly reappeared with Twitter taking responsibility for the outage.
In a statement by the company said Trump's account was "inadvertently deactivated due to human error" by one of its employees.
"We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again," the statement continued.
The White House has yet to comment on the incident.
Twitter later said the account was deactivated by an employee on their last day at the company.
