WASHINGTON– President Donald Trump’s Twitter account briefly disappeared Thursday night, but is now back up and running, according to the social messaging company.
Quickly prior to 7 p.m. Thursday, social media reports appeared that the president’s individual account, @RealDonaldTrump, was not available, offering the error message that the user “does not exist.” The account was restored by 7:03 p.m.
Twitter took responsibility for the blackout. In a tweeted statement, the company said Trump’s account was “unintentionally shut off due to human mistake” by among its workers. The account was unreachable for 11 minutes.
“We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from occurring again,” the business declaration continued.
A representative for the White House did not immediately react to ask for remark.
