US President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account @realdonaldtrump was briefly deactivated by a Twitter employee who was leaving the company on Thursday.

Trump’s account, which has a massive following of about 41.7 million users, was down for good 11 minutes before it was restored. When people tried to look at his account, a Twitter message said, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

Twitter later tweeted that it was because of “human error,” and that the company was investigating further.

In another tweet later on Thursday, Twitter confirmed that the account was deactivated by a Twitter employee on his last day in the company. “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.”

Now since this gaffe involved world’s favourite Donald Trump, Twitter was soon flooded with jokes. Many users praised the employee for taking down Trump’s account and hailed him as a hero, even though it was just for 11 minutes
