President Trump's Twitter account disappeared from the massive Thaonline sharing forum Thursday night at approximately 7 p.m. ET. When users attempted to search for the popular account they were presented with an unexpected "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"
Speculation roared about what could have happened in the short time that the president of the United States' Twitter-verified user account had vanished.

President Trump has long been a fan of the social sharing site, with it's capacity for him to communicate with his more-than 41 million followers instantly with his thoughts and feelings on current events. He has typed over 36,000 tweets since March 2009 when he first created an account on the open news network.
At first, the social media site announced that the account had been "inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee," and that "We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again."
However, it now appears that the disappearance wasn't an accident at all.
