Donald Trump’s Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, was briefly deleted this morning, raising a lot of questions on the social media platform, until Twitter made an official statement explaining the US President’s disappearance from the website.

Users attempting to reach enlightenment through the US President’s Twitter account around 11pm GMT were met with disappointment and a message that read “sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

@realDonaldTrump made a return 11 minutes after its apparent removal, with Twitter putting out an official tweet explaining what had happened saying, “@realDonaldTrump was inadvertently deactivated due to a human error by a Twitter employee.”

 

Twitter went on to release another statement two hours later, saying that Trump’s account had been deleted by a customer support employee who did it on their last day.

One Twitter user tweeted, “deactivated Donald Trump’s twitter account is going to be quite the accomplishment on someone’s LinkedIn profile.”

President Trump has yet to tweet about the incident.

There have been calls for the suspension of Trump’s account, especially after making threats to North Korea, reportedly violating Twitter’s guidelines.

Trump’s account seemingly continues to persist against any and all odds, including, apparently, deletion.
