Twitter Employee Deletes President Trump’s Twitter Account
President Trump’s personal Twitter account briefly disappeared Thursday evening, causing a frenzy on the social media platform.
Search results for Trump’s Twitter “@realDonaldTrump” displayed a “sorry, that page no longer exists” message for a couple minutes just before 7 p.m. Eastern time.
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.

I don't recall @BarackObama ever experiencing this glitch by regular employees.
