An employee at Twitter deleted President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account on their last day at the company.

Early Thursday night, President Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, was seemingly removed from Twitter’s website, returning an error to users attempting to access the president’s Twitter page.

Approximately 11 minutes later, however, the account was restored. Twitter used their Twitter Government account to announce their investigation into the supposed error and claimed President Trump’s account was deleted due to “human error by a Twitter employee.”

Shortly after this tweet, Twitter provided some further context to the deletion, revealing that a disgruntled former employee had deleted President Trump’s account on their last day at Twitter. The company stated that they would be conducting a full internal review:

Breitbart News reached out to Twitter for comment but was told by a Twitter spokesperson that they didn’t have “anything further to share beyond our Tweets tonight but thank you for checking.”

Many leftists took to Twitter to express their joy over the deletion of President Trump’s account, if even only for a short period of time.
