Donald Trump’s Twitter account was deactivated earlier today and for a moment we whispered of a dream. A world where Donald Trump was no longer president of the United States, well almost. Apparently, if you tried landing on the @realDonaldTrump Twitter page you would have been greeted with the message “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”
Users began to
dream, ehm ehm , wonder whether Trump was blocked from Twitter or maybe the Generals at the White House finally tackled the President and deleted his account. Alas, it was soon explained that the account had been deactivated “due to human error by a Twitter employee”.
“The account was down for 11 minutes and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again,” the company said in a statement.
However, we had eleven minutes of sanity.
TWITTER JUST BANNED DONALD TRUMP! 😂😂😂😂😂

I think we just came together as a nation for 23 seconds.

Trump’s Twitter account is gone. Please say that the FBI stormed the WH, deleted his Twitter account, & then quietly left the building.

We’ll all remember where we were during the 10 minutes of peace while Donald Trump’s Twitter account was down.

But then we sighed.

For the briefest of moments, Donald Trump’s twitter was deactivated. And there was rejoicing. Then it was reactivated, and we despaired.

Whispers of a dream. Whispers of a dream.
