An anonymous customer support employee at Twitter made the most of their last day Thursday and did what every Twitter employee should do as often as humanly possible: Theydeactivated Donald Trump’s account. Are you that anonymous patriot? Do you have any idea who that anonymous patriot is? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
For those who didn’t hear the details, around 7 p.m. ET, Trump’s account disappeared for a solid 11 minutes. Twitter was quick to blame the incident on “human error.”
Earlier today@realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently 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.— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
It was not human error, and Twitter later corrected itself.
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.https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
It was the work of a hero with nothing to lose. And, friend, we’d love to talk.
So if this former employee is you ― or if you know anything about who it might be ― there are a few different ways you can reach out. You can shoot me an email email@example.com, and if you’d like to encrypt that email, you can findmy PGP key here. You can also ask me for my number if you’d prefer to talk overSignal. If you’d like to be extra careful, you can learn how to reach outthrough SecureDrop here. We can’t wait to hear from you.
