Twit­ter em­ployee closes Trump ac­count

The Guardian Weekly - - World Roundup -

A Twit­ter em­ployee de­ac­ti­vated Don­ald Trump’s per­sonal ac­count on their last day of work, the com­pany said last Thurs­day, mean­ing it was prob­a­bly de­lib­er­ate.

The move by the em­ployee – who has not been named – meant that the pres­i­dent’s @re­al­don­ald trump ac­count was down for 11 min­utes.

Dur­ing the brief pe­riod of downtime any­one go­ing to the @realDon­aldTrump Twit­ter page saw the mes­sage “Sorry, that page doesn’t ex­ist!” Twit­ter ini­tially said the ac­count had been in­ad­ver­tently de­ac­ti­vated “due to hu­man er­ror by a Twit­ter em­ployee”, but soon after said “we have learned that this was done by a Twit­ter cus­tomer sup­port em­ployee”.
