Twitter 'inadvertently' turns off Trump's account

Twitter 'inadvertently' turns off Trump's account”

Whether it was a technical glitch, user error, or some move on the part of Twitter was unclear.

The president's personal Twitter account has become a media sensation since the time of Trump's presidential candidacy. "Is this how we do coups now?" joked New Republic editor Jeet Heer.

The official account is yet to acknowledge that it had been shut down, tweeting about tax cuts 30 minutes later.

Even when it was back up and running, there appeared to be glitches.

Trump has used the account since March 2009.

The deactivation was welcomed by some of the president's critics and detractors, who urged Twitter to repeat the mistake again, permanently, in the near future.

Three hours later, Twitter 'fessed up to say it had erred. The account was unreachable for 11 minutes.

We've reached out to Twitter for clarification on just what happened to make Trump's account inaccessible.

As the internet speculated about the reason, Twitter later said it was a mistake from one of their members of staff.
