Regular readers of Colorado Pols know that we are always amused when a politician blames an error of some kind on a “rogue staffer.” So, imagine our delight when we saw this news about Donald Trump’s Twitter feed going down for 11 minutes on Thursday.
Twitter confirmed that the outage had been caused by a rogue employee.
“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,” read a tweet from Twitter’s government handle. “We are conducting a full internal review.”
Trump responded to the outage Friday in the most Trumpian fashion. “My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee,” he tweeted Friday morning. “I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact.”
Damn you, Rogue Staffer!
