President Donald Trump's Twitter account was momentarily deactivated by a "rogue" employee on his last day of the job.

For all of 11 minutes, the world was without the wrath of Trump's Twitter fingers after his account was deactivated by an employee at the social media company, the Daily Mail reported.

The incident occurred on Nov. 2 at around 7 p.m. Attempts to visit the president's Twitter page were met with a surprising message.

"Sorry, that page doesn't exist!" the message read. "You can search Twitter using the search box below or return to the homepage."

Several social media users speculated that Twitter may have removed Trump's account, or that the president may have finally decided to delete his social media account on his own. But shortly after, Twitter issued a statement saying Trump's account was "inadvertently deactivated due to human error" by one of its employees.

In a second statement, Twitter confirmed the president's account was deliberately deleted by an employee on his final day at the job.

"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," the company stated. "We are conducting a full internal review."

Trump wasted no time hopping back on his go-to social media platform. He congratulated the Houston Astros on winning the World Series, shared several videos of himself and commented on his account being deactivated.

"My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee," the president tweeted. "I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact."

Trump then went on a tweeting spree aimed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Justice Department, and FBI.

"Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn't looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems," the president tweeted. "New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!"

"The real story on Collusion is in Donna B's new book. Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!" Trump continued. "Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept."
