The story of President Donald Trump's Twitter account being temporarily deactivated by someone on their last day of work at Twitter is internet gold, isn't it? It's got all the right elements - a hero, a villain (I'll let you decide which is which) and it played out on social media for us all to enjoy.

After an initial message saying an investigation was taking place, Twitter confirmed - via a tweet, naturally - that it was an employee who was working out their last day.

Now, the unnamed former employee has gained themselves quite a fan club. And when I say quite a fan club, there are people calling for them to be knighted and/or given the Nobel Peace Prize.



Perhaps a bit much for simply deactivating an account? It doesn't seem like for swaths of Twitter users who were over the moon to have a short (11 minutes) break from Donald's tweeting. SAD.



Others reckon they should be given their job back and even offered a promotion:



Now I guess we just have to wait for Trump's response...it's bound to be a good one.
