Twitter takes responsibility for Trump Twitter outage

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s Twitter account briefly disappeared Thursday evening, but is now back up and running, according to the social messaging company.

Shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday, social media reports surfaced that the president’s personal account, @RealDonaldTrump, was unavailable, providing the error message that the user “does not exist.” The account was restored by 7:03 p.m.

Twitter took responsibility for the outage. In a tweeted statement, the company said Trump’s account was “inadvertently deactivated due to human error” by one of its employees. The account was unreachable for 11 minutes.

“We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again,” the company statement continued.

A spokesperson for the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Why no mention of the bombshell news from Donna Brazile of Hillary R Clinton hijacking the DNC to throw the nomination in her favor? Uranium One, Russian Dossier and now Stealing a Nomination.
    No wonder people elected Donald Trump as President – tired of liberal politicians running rough-shod over U.S. Laws and the American people.
