Twitter Absolutely Flips Out After Trump’s Twitter Account Briefly Vanishes (UPDATE)

For a brief moment of time early this evening, the world thought something earth-shattering had occurred as it appeared President Donald Trump had deleted his personal Twitter account.

Yep. At one point, it looked like the tweeter-in-chief had cut ties with his preferred media platform.

And folks online were flipping out!

But, alas, it was not meant to be, as after only a few minutes, Trump’s personal account was back online. OF course, there were jokes:

UPDATE 8:16 PM ET: Twitter provided an explanation on the brief deactivation of Trump’s account. According to Twitter Government, a Twitter employee “inadvertently deactivated” the account.

UPDATE 10:08 ET: Twitter followed up with the “human error” by revealing that a customer support employee was responsible.
