Donald Trump won the presidency in part because of his Twitter habits and his particular talent for getting under the skin of the Left and never-Trumpers.

When the president’s account was turned back on after a rogue Twitter employee shut it down for 11 minutes on Thursday, Trump issued one of his trademark trolling tweets — and once again set off his political enemies.

For 11 minutes on Thursday, Trump’s account was deactivated, which Twitter initially claimed was an accident. “Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee,” Twitter claimed in a statement Thursday evening. “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.”

Two hours later, Twitter announced that their investigation found that there was nothing inadvertent about the temporary silencing of the president. “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,” Twitter revealed in a statement Thursday night.

Early Friday morning, Trump issued his own statement clearly designed to tweak the social media giant and his critics. “My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee. I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact,” he wrote.

Trump’s tweet, like basically all of his tweets, set of a series of incensed responses from anti-Trumpers, many of whom made clear that they would love nothing more than if Trump was permanently silenced. A few examples:
