In what appears to be a rogue employee on his/her last day trying to be funny, make a mark, and/or do the country a service, President Trump’s Twitter account was deactivated for 11 minutes. Twitter has not released the name of the former employee nor whether or not it was intentional, but many Twitter users are assuming it was done on purpose.

Trump’s supporters have often praised the President for utilizing Twitter as a primary method of communication, heralding his directness and lack of a filter. Detractors warn that he’s making a fool of himself and the country with his oft-unhinged use of the social media site.

The account is alive and active now, for better or for worse.
