Donald Trump’s Twitter Account Briefly Goes Missing, Twitter Rejoices

”We just experienced the best two minutes of 2017“

Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account appeared to have been deactivated for a few minutes on Thursday, briefly sending the social media platform spiraling with speculation about the cause.

The @realDonaldTrump account went down around 3:55 p.m. PT on Thursday afternoon, but was back up within 10 minutes. The reason for the outage wasn’t immediately clear, and representatives for Twitter have not yet returned TheWrap’s request for comment.

Users attempting to view Trump’s profile were met with a “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” message, leading some to wonder whether the account had been suspended, deleted voluntarily, or if they were experiencing some kind of technical glitch.

When the account went back online, users began to joke about the short respite from the president’s combative Twitter presence, and the historical significance of seeing the first prolific tweeter to inhabit the White House going offline.

“We’ll all remember where we were during the 10 minutes of peace while Donald Trump’s Twitter account was down,” wrote comedian Mike Drucker.

“I survived the Trump twitter outage,” wrote Think Progress founder Judd Legum, who memorialized the moment with the hashtag #neverforget.

Trump’s last tweet was a video of his press conference announcing Jerome Powell as his nominee to replace Janet Yellen as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. That missive was sent at 3:35 p.m. PT.
