Twitter Users Express Concern After Employee Temporarily Removes President Trump's Account

Twitter Users Express Concern After Employee Temporarily Removes President Trump's Account

The suspension of Trump's account for 11 minutes actually didn't do much.

This short span of time was commemorated by many as the "Trump Twitter Outage of 2017". The reason this happened?

Twitter on Thursday night blamed a customer support worker for deactivating Trump's account on his or her last day on the job.

"My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee", he wrote. The company said it suspended McGowan's account because the actress had tweeted a private phone number, a violation of its terms of service.

Trump's Twitter account was deactivated just before 7 p.m., apparently by an employee who was working a final day with the social media company.

The account was offline for about 11 minutes, during which Twitter users searching for Trump's account were met with a notice saying: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"




Dorsey has had his own problems using Twitter.

"We are conducting a full internal review", it added.

In June, Trump tweeted remarks aimed at MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski: "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore)". As for Trump, he's back to tweeting and hasn't missed a beat since the account went down. It said that it considers a "number of factors" and that one of them is "newsworthiness" - suggesting the tweet will stay up because it is in the "public interest".

There are easy arguments to be made that he's violated Twitter's terms of service with some of the very bad things he's tweeted, including his antagonistic tweets towards North Korea, but Twitter has, so far, made excuses for allowing him to remain active.

The president is aware of the issue and the White House is in touch with Twitter, said an official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a delicate matter.
