Trump’s Of­fi­cial Ac­count Sus­pended by Rogue Twit­ter Em­ployee


In other no­table Twit­ter quirks, US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s of­fi­cial ac­count [@realdon­aldtrump] got de­ac­ti­vated out of the blue on Novem­ber 2 for a to­tal of 11 min­utes by a seem­ingly up­set Twit­ter em­ployee, who was re­vealed to be a cus­tomer ser­vice em­ployee on the last day of the job. And while the ac­count was shortly re­stored to its reg­u­lar ac­tiv­ity, Twit­ter is said to be in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter and has set to im­ple­ment the nec­es­sary mea­sures to pre­vent such in­ci­dents from oc­cur­ring in the fu­ture. Trump him­self, on the other hand, ad­dressed the con­tro­versy in a tweet posted a day later. “My Twit­ter ac­count was taken down for 11 min­utes by a rogue em­ployee. I guess the word must fi­nally be get­ting out-and hav­ing an im­pact,” the tweet read.
