Trump’s Twitter Account Goes Down


President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account was disrupted Thursday evening.

The Commander in Chief’s ‘@realDonaldTrump‘ page could not be accessed for several minutes but his ‘@POTUS’ account remained unaffected.

Twitter later confirmed an employee deactivated Trump’s account, issuing a statement: Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee. 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.


Social media users questioned if Twitter suspended his account, or perhaps it was a hack.
