Twitter Employee Temporarily Deactivates Trump’s Twitter Account On Last Day of Work

In the most legendary and ballsy last-day-of-work fuck-you probably ever, an employee at Twitter intentionally deactivated Donald Trump’s notorious Twitter account and for 11 sweet minutes, the internet rejoiced.

We’ve heard of people leaving their jobs and going out with a bang, but how often does that bang have a direct impact on the leader of the free world?

Yesterday around 4pm PST, one rogue employee at Twitter felt that rush when they intentionally shut down Donald Trump’s Twitter account, and for 11 peaceful minutes, people searching for the president’s profile saw this:

In those 11 minutes, as Twitter officials scurried to figure out what had happened, stating that “the account had been inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee,” U.S. citizens felt that much safer from the threat of nuclear war with North Korea.

Eventually the account was fully restored and Twitter released a new statement announcing that the accounts disappearance was indeed no accident.

“Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review,” they announced in the new statement.

While @realDonaldTrump is back up and running again, the rogue employee, who hasn’t been named, is officially gone, but definitely not forgotten. All over the internet, people are expressing their congratulations and admiration for the unnamed “hero.”

So thank you, mystery Twitter employee. Your actions were risky and brave, but it’s because of you that for 11 brief minutes, the world felt just that much more sane. You da real MVP.

lol I really doubt it, I only saw people rejoicing that the Toddler-in-Chief's account had been suspended.
I imagine that the Orange Clown must have been having one of his huge meltdown over it though.

It's amazing how so many people who claim to advocate "free speech" are such hypocrites.

Hmmsss... let's see........... If somebody blocked Obama's Blackberry a few year ago, would you still hire him, buy him a drink, have his children, call him brave, award him a medal or recomend him for a promotion?
