Donald Trump's Twitter Account Was Shut Down Briefly by 'Rogue Employee'

The exorbitant following on Twitter has since been restored and could possibly be related to the issues surrounding the President's account that saw him briefly lose access to the social network. For almost 11 minutes, US President Donald Trump's social media account - @realDonaldTrump - was not visible. People quickly notice and post screenshots, but there's no explanation of what happened - leading some to believe that service might never be restored.

However, After two hours, Twitter admitted that the deactivation wasn't an accident at all. There were five rogue tweets in early 2011 in which Trump expressed his support for the prescient, fan-created website called ShouldTrumpRun.com - technically still self-promotional, but a little sloppier and more visceral in their execution. Users frantically refreshed the URL leading to the unprecedented (and unfiltered) psychological profile of America's commander in chief, only to be shown a blue landing page that read, "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!".

"Is this how we do coups now?" one person questioned. Sarah Spain couldn't survive one mild inquiry from a random Twitter user, before she caved and started coming up with absurd excuses. A new poll suggests the Russia collusion probe is not a top priority for Americans.

Many of the president's 41.8 million followers who ally themselves with his views were obviously aghast at the action, while opponents at first thought Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had finally pulled the plug on the divisive account. This, of course, should be taken quite seriously.

- This report was updated at 2:26 p.m. His comments overnight even went as far as suggesting the detained attacker be sent to Guantanamo Bay where he'd receive the death penalty.

Twitter's statement that Trump's account was deactivated by an employee who was leaving the company sparked another line of jokes and memes.
