Washington D.C. [United States], Nov 3 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has described the person who deactivated his personal Twitter account as a 'Rogue Employee'.

"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," Trump said in a tweet.

Twitter blamed "human error" on behalf of an unnamed employee after United States President Donald Trump's personal Twitter account disappeared for 11 minutes on Thursday evening.

A tweet issued by Twitter's Government and Elections team said that the account was down for 11 minutes due to human error by a Twitter employee.

"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," the post read.

Trump's personal Twitter account had disappeared for a few minutes on Thursday evening.

Those trying to access @realDonaldTrump on Twitter just before 7 p.m. local time came across a "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!" message.

However, after around the account page reappeared after few minutes and seemed to be functioning as normal. (ANI)
