Twitter Bans Its Own Chief Executive Jack Dorsey’s Account

The Twitter account of the co-founder and CEO of social media Twitter, Jack Dorsey, briefly disappeared on Tuesday night before reappearing with significantly fewer followers than before. Attempts to visit Dorsey’s account, @jack produced a standard message indicating that his account had been suspended. It was not immediately clear why this incident took place. However, by 9:15 P.M. Eastern time, the co-founder and CEO of the social media Twitter, Jack Dorsey’s account was back online with a reset follower account as we told earlier.

About 15 minutes later, the bill mysteriously returned, but instead of the more than 4 million followers that Dorsey had previously had his number of followers was reduced to a very modest 151. The incident occurs when the network was going through a difficult period. Ten years after its creation, it is still struggling to expand its audience and to find an economic model. Rumors of a possible acquisition had broken out in recent months, but all the suitors cited as Google, Disney or, have thrown in the towel.

However, later the co-founder and CEO of the social media Twitter, Jack Dorsey stated that his suspension was due to “an internal error”.
