Trump's Twitter was deactivated - for all of 11 minutesby

US President Donald Trump’s use of social network Twitter is hardly old news – if anything, he largely uses it to ensure that he gets his own points and opinions across outside of the mainstream media. This has led to controversy within the White House as well as outside of it – as the President has made a number of points online that have not exactly gone down well with some members of the public as well as fellow politicians. To the relief of many who are against Trump, the figurehead appeared to have deactivated his Twitter account completely for a brief period – only for it to be reactivated minutes later. So what happened?

Trump referred to the incident – where else but on Twitter – as an incident that occurred as the result of rogue interaction – as it is thought that a member of his team on their last day of work in the White House may have brought his online mouthpiece down. The incident meant that, for the shortest time possible, the US President was lost for words. However, it seems that the incident was remedied very quickly indeed. Whether or not this incident caused mirth among anti-Trump users of the site (with some offering to buy the ex-staffer pizza if they own up), others are greatly concerned that allowing others such access to Trump’s Twitter could be extremely dangerous.

While it’s expected that some staff will have access to Trump’s social media and communications affairs, some people have raised concerns that if someone has access to be able to shut the President down, they could have the potential to cause unrest across the world in just a handful of characters. Twitter is fast becoming more and more controversial in the face of troubles it is experiencing as a result of dwindling users.

In a world where the US President makes his own policy and thoughts on international affairs so public through social media channels as opposed to through the mainstream media, it should inarguably be time for more stringent controls to be put in place. In a world where a war of rhetoric is taking place between the likes of Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un on a regular basis, it is perhaps time that we started taking closer care of our social media than ever before. Where will it all end?
