Twitter announced Thursday evening that an employee, on his or her last day of work at the company, deactivated President Donald Trump’s notorious Twitter account. The president’s account was only absent for 11 minutes before it was restored.
In a series of its own tweets, the company said: “We are conducting a full internal review.”
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. https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF

The company did not elaborate as to what steps had or would be taken.
As of this writing, the president has not commented directly on the incident. His most recent tweet, authored at approximately 9:45pm ET on Thursday, promotes a Friday morning television interview.
Trump’s use of the social media platform has been controversial, to say the least.
