What do Roger Stone and President Trump have in common?Well, both men have unfortunately had their Twitter accounts recently deactivated or suspended.
For an eternal 11 minutes, President Trump’s Twitter account was purposely taken down by an apparent disgruntled “customer service” company employee. Trump quickly responded to the the take down, and took full advantage and political credit for the incident.
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.

Twitter stated: “We are conducting a full internal review,” the company said in a statement about the approximately 11-minute outage.”
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.— Twitter Government (@TwitterGov) November 3, 2017
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. https://t.co/mlarOgiaRF

Trump’s Twitter account is back up, but Stone’s @Rogerjstonejr handle is still suspended after the company said that he violated its rules.See here:
Stone was suspended because he went off on somewhat of a expletive-laden rant, but that rant was far less benign than those of liberal pundit Keith Olberman.
Listen, I never quite put it this way on the air, so on behalf of the non-racist, non-predatory people, let me say it:
Go fuck yourself. https://t.co/ink0R0NjNy

Olberman’s account is still up, even after dropping F-bombs on a regular basis.
Meanwhile, Stone’s @Stonecoldtruth handle is still up, for now.
