On account of Donald trump made an attempt on Twitter
Nov 05 2017
A departing company employee took President Donald Trump's Twitter account offline briefly.
Trump's account, through which he reaches 41.8 million followers, was down for 11 minutes on Thursday night.
Twitter's explanation has led many to wonder how a low-level employee was able to wield such outsized influence on the platform.
Others compared the customer support worker to a hero.
Twitter said in a tweet on Friday: "We have implemented safeguards to prevent this from happening again". This morning, Trump blamed a "rogue employee".
President Donald Trump's Twitter page. The account was taken offline "by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee's last day", officials said.
Let the man who hasn't fantasized about shutting up Trump permanently by breaking his baby hands cast the first stone at the Twitter employee. "I guess the word must finally be getting out - and having an impact". "Trump's Twitter deactivated for 11 min, and I suddenly thought I'd jumped back into the real timeline where things aren't so damned absurd", tweeted Star Trek actor turned social media personality George Takei.
Trump frequently uses Twitter to announce policy, assail his adversaries and to tangle with countries, including North Korea, over world affairs. But the outage also sparked discussion of the security of Trump's account.
"We are conducting a full internal review", the company said.
"Different types of access", the former employee said. The news of the deactivation of the outspoken, tweet-prone president delighted many on Twitter, with some even suggesting that the unnamed employee should be given knighthood or nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Trump's account disruption comes hours after tweeting that he was backing off the idea of sending the NY terrorism suspect to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, calling for a regular federal trial and the death penalty instead.
