President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, @realdonaldtrump, disappeared from the site for around five beautiful minutes shortly before 7PM ET. It was not clear what happened to the account, and Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
During this time, the president was unable to tweet insults, boasts, odd syntax, or misinformation about terrorism.
People were into it.
I think we just came together as a nation for 23 seconds.

@jack I need to very seriously tell you that the 70 seconds that Trump’s twitter account went away were the happiest 70 seconds of my year.

Dang. That was the best five minutes of the year.
