Everyone's congratulating the Twitter employee who deleted Donald Trump's account
Ноя 05 2017
The New York Times on Friday reported the rogue employee was in fact a contractor, citing two anonymous sources familiar with the incident.
Trump has even used the social media site to announce policy, and surprised Pentagon chiefs in July by tweeting that transgender people would be barred from serving "in any capacity" in the U.S. military, a ban that has since been blocked by a United States court.
"We have implemented safeguards to prevent this from happening again", Twitter said in a statement.
A Twitter customer support employee performed the community service on his last day.
Trump frequently uses Twitter to announce policy, assail his adversaries and to tangle with countries, including North Korea, over world affairs.
"It is shocking that some random Twitter employee could shut down the president's account".
"We are conducting a full internal review", the company said.
After the account was restored Trump did not tweet about the vanishing act, but made several posts on other topics. The newspaper added: Twitter customer support cannot, however, access customers' private direct messages, nor can they tweet on behalf of other users.
Hundreds of employees are able to access the accounts of so-called Very Important Tweeters, or VITs, and can take actions like disabling the accounts, according to current and former Twitter employees.
"Earlier today @realdonaldtrump's account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee", Twitter Government tweeted. Trump's official White House account, @POTUS, has 20.9 million followers. "I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact", he wrote. But the outage also sparked discussion of the security of Trump's account.
Trump, who has almost 42 million Twitter followers, responded to the temporary loss of his account by boasting about his wide reach on the service.
