Guess whose Twitter account got deactivated? Yes! The famous Twitterati and the US President, Donald Trump’s Twitter account got deactivated. It was shut down for 11 minutes on Thursday, 2nd November 2017.
Mr. Trump, who has 41.7 million followers, was really upset by this news. The social media company started its investigation as soon as the news was aired, and came to the conclusion that a former employee deactivated Mr. President’s account on his last day at work.
Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review. https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF

This act started a debate regarding the security of Mr. Donald Trump’s social media accounts..
Trump has been actively using the Twitter platform to promote his policies and to attack his opponents ever since he has taken over the office in January 2017. The personal account of Trump got deactivated, however, the official account @POTUS was unaffected.
Twitteratis could not resist taking this whole scenario to the next level.

The account has now been activated. Donald Trump is also back in action and has announced a punishment for the employee.
…There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the horrible crime he committed. Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!
