For a few brief, blissful moments on Thursday, Donald Trump’s Twitter account didn’t exist. The account — which now has 41 million followers — went offline for some five minutes before being restored back to its old state.

Reporters noticed the issue immediately, and attempts to reach his page displayed the “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” error message.

The account appeared to come back online within minutes.

The last tweet posted to the account before the issue was a video clip announcing Jerome Powell as the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Trump had used the platform several times earlier in the day to call for the death penalty for Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the man charged with two terrorism counts following the New York attack.

As Twitter users have pointed out, the error message was different to the one shown when accounts are suspended.

The POTUS account was unaffected.

UPDATE Nov. 2 5:09 p.m. PT:

Twitter addressed the issue in a tweet, insisting that “human error” was to blame.

UPDATE Nov. 2 7:12 p.m. PT:  Twitter shared that they had determined Trump’s account was intentionally deactivated by a Twitter customer support employee on their last day. So not so much human error.
