Twitter users were frenzied yesterday evening when POTUS Donald Trump's social media presence completely disappeared.
Trump's Twitter was off the grid for an entire 11 minutes, according to Twitter Government.
While many online thought that the president had been hacked, it turns out that this social media sabbatical was down to human error.
Someone out there is about to put "deleted Donald Trump's twitter account" on their resume…

The employee who made the error was reportedly on his or her's last day of work at Twitter.
'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,' reads a statement from Twitter.
'We are conducting a full internal review.'
Yep, that was definitely human error all right…
