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.
Save this image & send tweet it to Trump 24/7 Then nominate that Twitter employee for a Nobel Peace Prize :v:

Just gonna say it, the employee at Twitter who shut off Trump's account for 11 mins could become a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Please get the departing Twitter employee who deactivated Donald Trump's account on their last day a medal, a knighthood, a magnum of champagne and a small tropical island.

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.
Whoever managed to disable Donald Trump's Twitter account deserves a medal. That person is a hero.

"UPDATE: Donald Trump's Twitter account was allegedly deactivated by an AMERICAN HERO on their last day of employment" - there I fixed it

Others reckon they should be given their job back and even offered a promotion:
Who ever works for Twitter and deleted Donald Trump's account deserves a raise

You say "human error," I say "due for a promotion" https://t.co/KHDFFUezsL

Whoever disabled Donald Trump's Twitter account shouldn't be sacked. They should be promoted.

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