Fox News host Sean Hannity’s Twitter account appears to be deleted as of early Saturday morning. It is currently unclear what caused the account to disappear.
Visitors to Hannity’s twitter page are currently greeted by a message informing them that the account no longer exists.
Twitter has recently been in the spotlight for political bias after Project Veritas caught numerous employees on camera revealing that the company targets conservatives.
In late 2017, President Donald Trump’s Twitter account was briefly deleted by a rogue Twitter employee before being quickly restored.
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hannity’s verified Twitter account appears to be restored, but no explanation is provided as to why it disappeared overnight. The latest tweet on the account’s timeline at the time of this update only says:
Form Submission 1649 | #Hannity

A Twitter spokesperson told Breitbart: “While we normally do not discuss individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons, we have permission from the account owner to confirm that account was briefly compromised. We are working with the owner to restore access.”
