President Donald Trump responded to an admission by Twitter that an employee intentionally deactivated his account on Thursday.

“My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee,” Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday morning. “I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact.”

Twitter initially said that the president’s account was “inadvertently deactivated.”

“The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored,” the statement read. “We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again.”

But two hours later, Twitter revealed that the employee did it intentionally.

Trump has sent seven messages on the social media platform since his account was restored, some of them highlighting the “rigged” party politics of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
