If, for whatever reason, you tried to take a look at President Donald Trump's Twitter account yesterday, you may have been greeted with a notice telling you it didn't exist.

For 11 minutes yesterday, Trump's account was down, with people quickly speculating that the POTUS had been suspended from the social media site, until the account was later restored.

Twitter has now announced that the account was deactivated by an employee who was working out their last day for the social media company.

In a tweet, it said: "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."

A previous Tweet said the company was 'continuing to investigate' to 'prevent this from happening again'.

After finding out that it was a soon-to-be former employee of Twitter responsible, people quickly started calling him a 'hero' for his actions:

In a recent interview with Fox News, he said: "When somebody, says something about me, I am able to go bing, bing, bing and I take care of it. The other way, I would never be get the word out."

But his 'bing, bing, bing' approach isn't popular with everyone, North Korea accused the President of declaring war via Twitter when he posted that Kim Jong-un 'won't be around much longer'.

Unusually, President Trump hasn't commented on his account being deactivated yet, but I'm it's only a matter of time.
