Donald Trump Describes Twitter Deactivator As A 'Rogue Employee'

President Donald Trump has responded to his Twitter account being deactivated by a Twitter employee on their last day of work.

Finally addressing the most-talked about news story of the day, he said: "My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee. I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact."

What does that even mean? What word? What's he talking about?

I can only imagine the look on his face when he went to log-in last night and was met with a page telling him his account didn't exist. I was kind of hoping his response was going to be a bit more explosive than that.


He's not known for showing restraint on Twitter when he's feeling under attack. North Korea accused him of using social media to 'declare war' after he posted that Kim Jong-un 'won't be around much longer'.

Or there was the time he went in on Arnold Schwarzenegger:

Anyway, he's back to firing off multiple tweets about 'deleted emails' and 'Crooked Hillary' now, but am I the only one thinking Trump won't leave this here? Especially following all the attention the story has got today. He won't be able to resist.

Or maybe the unnamed former Twitter employee will make themselves known and start a full-on Twitter feud, that'd be good, wouldn't it? A nice distraction from the world.
