Twitter bans its own CEO: Jack Dorsey temporarily suspended

Quite a few of the Twitter CEO's 3 million subscribers realized his account was axed and responded by making fun of the temporary suspension.

Published onNovember 23, 2016


Jack Dorsey’s Twitter account was recently suspended by the company he co-founded back in 2006. Well, for around 15 minutes at least. The reasons behind it are still unknown, but it’s probably the result of a bug or human error. At least Twitter didn’t claim he was dead like Facebook recently did.

Nevertheless, people on Twitter found it quite funny that Dorsey (@jack) was suspended from the social network he helped create. Quite a few of his almost 3 million followers that realized Dorsey’s account was axed decided the best thing to do was make fun of the situation.


Thankfully, the issue was sorted out quickly. Jack announced he was back on the network with a tweet saying “just setting up my twttr…again”, which is a reference to the first tweet ever posted back in 2006. Dorsey also stated that the account suspension was an internal mistake, but did not provide any further info.

Let’s just hope no one gets fired over this. After all, accidents happen: remember that Dorsey’s Twitter account was hacked a while back.

What do you think about the latest flop over at Twitter? Did you get a kick out of it?
