For 11 wonderful minutes on Thursday evening, Donald Trump’s Twitter account was deactivated. Though Twitter initially said it was the result of an “inadvertent” human action, a subsequent investigation revealed that it was very much intentional. An outgoing Twitter employee bravely and selflessly deactivated the account prior to leaving their final day of work.
To this unnamed hero, thank you. Even if it was for only 11 minutes, it was quite nice not having to fear a Twitter-provoked nuclear apocalypse.
