Washington: Dancing, singing, partying, and the praising the Twitter employee who celebrated "their" last day at work by deactivating Donald Trump's account Twitterites Thursday had a field day, though the US President began re-tweeting after a good 11 minutes.
As Trump's twitter account disappeared and visitors started getting "page not found" message, a large number of Americans took to the micro blogging site to open up and express their reactions. There were photos, GIF and clips of the people partying, dancing and celebrating, as hailing the Twitter employee as their hero.
And the best one is probably this: "Cheers to the Twitter ex-employee who deleted Trump's Twitter account today and Made America Great again for those 11 minutes".
Trump's Twitter deactivated for 11 min, and I suddenly thought I'd jumped back into the real timeline where things aren't so damned absurd.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) November 3, 2017
Molly Hanmer who uses Twitter handler @MollyHanmer, praising the "last day hero" said, "This man is a patriot! #Resist Twitter employee on last day of job deactivated Trump's account, company says."

Earlier, there was a commotion like situation when US President Donald Trump's message gave "Sorry, account does not exist" message.
Visitors to @realDonaldTrump around 7:00 pm (2300 GMT) were greeted with a message "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!", Twitter confirmed.
Twitter initially said the account had been "inadvertently deactivated due to human error", but later indicated it was a prank by a departing worker.
"Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee. The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again", the message said.
The company however later said, a Twitter employee on 'their' last day with the firm was responsible for taking down Donald Trump's account.
"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. We are conducting a full internal review", the statement posted on Twitter said.
