Trump has found a positive point is that his account deleted

In the past, campaigns have been launched for Twitter to take action against Trump's account for apparently violating its rules.

Trump frequently uses Twitter to announce policy, assail his adversaries and to tangle with countries, including North Korea, over world affairs.

If things seemed a little off to you, that's because President Donald Trump's Twitter account disappeared for a brief moment around 7 p.m.

In a tweet Friday, the company said it would not share all the details of its investigation or updates on their security measure, "but we take this seriously and our teams are on it".

But given Mr Trump's prominence, and his ability for trying to direct USA policy in 140 character, the episode prompted a swirl of questions about what safeguards the site uses to prevent its employees from arbitrarily taking down accounts.

Multiple former Twitter employees threw cold water on the notion that random staffers could post from Trump's account, or any other.

Cyber security experts had previously speculated Twitter could have installed special protections on Trump's account, such as the ability to only access it from certain devices.

"We have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee's last day", the company tweeted, after citing inadvertent "human error" in an earlier post.

This is an issue that we talk about constantly", Sean Edgett, Twitter's acting general counsel, said at the hearing. Many ads were also targeted to NY , which Democrat Hillary Clinton won, and Missouri, carried by Republican Trump.

The company later said, "We have implemented safeguards to prevent this from happening again". In an earlier statement, the social network said it was "taking steps to prevent this from happening again".

"When users began to see the message "@realdDonaldTrump does not exist" on the social media platform, they started suggesting that the employee responsible be commemorated with statues, or become a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. "Lone employees shouldn't be able to change statements from the President".

This incident highlights the need for companies, especially those with a lot of data, to bulk up their monitoring capabilities and keep track of which employees have administrative control and access to information, Connor said.

A former Twitter engineer, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, called it "highly unlikely" that a Twitter employee could get access to Trump's account, but noted it was theoretically possible, at least as of a couple years ago.

It's not uncommon for technology companies like Twitter to rely on third-party workers for a range of tasks, some of them more sensitive than others. Twitter tightened the circle of people who could access it.

The rogue Twitter employee hailed as a social media hero for shutting down the President's account was hired as a contract worker, according to new reports.

The statement left many question from the tech community and Washington unanswered, including how many people had access to Trump's account and what were the security protocols in dealing with accounts of influential personalities, especially those related to US national security.

"My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee", Mr Trump wrote. "I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact", Trump tweeted on Friday.
