For 11 satisfied mins Twitter users celebrated a happy Trump-free experience, heaping appreciation on the rogue staffer that closed down the United States president.
Like the Xmas truce in the World War I trenches, for 11 peaceful mins it felt like tranquility and peace had burst out in the world with the abrupt suspension of the Donald Trump Twitter account.
It quickly arised that the blackout was not due to the fact that Twitter had acted against the President for his frequent threats on nuclear war, neither that Donald Trump had inadvertently erased his own account.
Rather, it appears a discontented Twitter employee had pulled the caper on their last day at the office.
Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review. https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
