  • Trump's Twitter account briefly goes down, critics seize at the chance to ridicule him

Security experts had previously speculated Twitter could have installed special protections on Trump's account, such as the ability to only access it from certain devices.

The internet held its breath, as searches for the president's @realDonaldTrump personal Twitter account brought up the message on screen that that handle "does not exist". The reason this happened?

The account was down for 11 minutes, and Twitter is now investigating.

A "rogue" Twitter employee working a final shift at the social network shut down US President Donald Trump's account - but only for 11 minutes.

"If a random customer support employee at Twitter can delete the President's account, could they also tweet as him?" they continued. Anyone visiting his Twitter profile was met with the standard "account suspended" page.

Trump often uses Twitter to comment on political and military matters.

And that they were "conducting a full internal review".

Mr Trump's Twitter output has always been a source of controversy, especially since his entry into politics.

Twitter's government and elections team initially issued a statement on the incident Thursday night. Twitter's rules let the company suspend accounts for violent threats, gender-based attacks and other forms of abuse and harassment.

With any past president, a tweet like that would immediately be assumed as the result of some sort of hack.

Trump addressed his account's suspension in a tweet early Friday. After a long 10 minutes, the President's account reappeared and within an hour and a half he started tweeting once more as if this entire ordeal did not even occur. "If an ordinary citizen tweeted some of what he tweeted, I would think some of them would be taken down".
