Twitter Investigating After Trump’s Account Was Deactivated By Employee On Last Day Of Work

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —Twitterverse went into a frenzy on Thursday night after the personal Twitter account of the commander-in-chief appeared to be deactivated.

When searching for @realDonaldTrump handle, the page read, “Sorry that page doesn’t exist.”

Twitter is claiming responsibility for the issue saying one of their customer support employees was involved in the deactivation of the account.

“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,” Twitter said.

The company says 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.”
