Trump’s Twitter Account Was ‘Inadvertently Deactivated’ By Twitter

President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, @realdonaldtrump, was “inadvertently deactivated,” the social media company said Thursday, and for a brief moment, life came back to normal.

“Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee,” the company said in a tweet. “We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again,” it added.

During that brief time period, the president was unable to tweet insults, boasts, odd syntax, or misinformation about terrorism.

Here’s how people reacted to the news:

There have been ongoing calls for Twitter to ban Trump over tweets that critics said could be interpreted as calls to violence. Twitter has said that it would enforce the same rules for Trump as it does for other accounts.
