A Twitter employee on 'their' last day with the firm was responsible for taking down Donald Trump's account, the micro blogging site said in a message late Thursday.

"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.

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 Twitter employee's "last day celebration" came amid wide spread anger against Donald Trump over his policies.

After 11 minutes if outage, Trump was able to use his account.
