It Is Not Fake News: @realDonaldTrump Was Really Deactivated For 11 Minutes on Nov. 2, 2017
Dear Friends & Neighbors,

In order to keep dictionaries current, Dictionary.com‘s next update will be adding a definition for the term fake news. The entry will read like this:
- fake news: false news stories, often of a sensational nature, created to be widely shared online for the purpose of generating and revenue via web traffic or discrediting a public figure, political movement, company, etc.
Of course, those of you who have been paying attention would have known that our current POTUS Trump is partially responsible for the currency of the phrase fake news. Both the President Trump and his supporters use “fake news” to cast a wide net over many articles that are filled with truths and facts.In general, they (Trump and his supporters) use the phrase more as a slur against mainstream media outlets which some conservatives considered to have a liberal bias.
President Trump’s incessant tweets did not only help to upgrade the currency of the phrase “fake news”, but may have also invited temporary removal/deactivation of his personal Twitter account by a Twitter employee on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017. Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account went down for eleven minutes Thursday afternoon. Twitter later tweeted that it was due to “human error” and there will be further investigation. In a tweet Friday morning, Twitter indicated that the @realDonaldTrump account was deactivated by a Twitter customer support employee on the employee’s last day of service/employment.
Twitter company spokesperson declined to comment on Twitter’s safety and security operations for “security reasons.” But after this incident, Twitter will surely be keeping a closer eye on the @realDonaldTrump account from this point forward.
Finally, I just want to assure you all that this is not fake news. POTUS Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account at Twitter was really deactivated on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 for 11 minutes and was restored later.
