As many know already Trump’s twitter account was hacked on November 2, 2017, for approximately 11 minutes. People trying to access his account at the time were shown a page that noted, the page did not exist.
The account had seemed to be hacked at first, but later on found out it was an employee of Twitter who had deleted Trump’s account on his last day of work. The employee still remains anonymous. After the fact, many other Twitter users then started posting about this incident. Some of these posts were ranting about the fact that his page was backed up, but there were also posts explaining how they were upset about this happening. Other users were not the only ones tweeting about this, but the President himself decided to post stating, “My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee. I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact.”
Twitter quickly apologized publicly on Twitter as well. They also declared that they were going to take further actions in assuring that this won’t happen again. There have been many complaints to Twitter about Trump’s account, so Twitter took a further step and posted a “clearer version” of the Twitter rules. Something as simple as Trump’s account being taken down for eleven minutes has made such an impact on and off of Twitter.
