Customer Support Worker at Twitter on His Last Day at Work “Deactivated” Trump Account

President Trump's twitter account was deactivated for 11 minutes on Thursday.

During the deactivation, visitors who tried to access Trump's twitter feed were greeted with:

“@realdonaldtrump does not exist” 

After initially reporting that human error was involved in the deactivation, Twitter later reported that  a customer support worker “deactivated” the @realdonaldtrump account on his last day of work:
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.

  1. My take is that he was instructed to do this by Twitter to gauge the reactions. This was no "mistake".
