Donald Trump's Twitter disappears, critics rejoice
DONALD Trump's Twitter account disappeared briefly today sparking speculation about what happened.
About 10am AEDT those who went on to the US President's account got an error message saying: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist".
But just a few minutes later it had reappeared.
About half an hour earlier, Mr Trump had tweeted a video about the nomination of Jerome Powell to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.
He had also posted a number of tweets about the move of Broadcom headquarters back to the US and the cancellation of the diversity visa lottery program following the New York truck rampage.
Overnight Mr Trump drew criticism for his comments that the alleged driver should be sent to Guantánamo Bay detention camp and get the death penalty.
For the briefest of moments, Donald Trump's twitter was deactivated. And there was rejoicing. Then it was reactivated, and we despaired.— Rob M. | Tokkan (@tokkanram) November 2, 2017
