Yesterday, the Twitter account for Jack Dorsey, the social media company’s co-founder and CEO, was suspended briefly.
Dorsey co-founded the network in 2006. It took an estimated 15 minutes for his account to mysteriously reappear. In a weird twist of events, Dorsey has lost almost 700,000 followers from his suspension. It isn’t clear what caused the vanishing act or the shrinkage in followers.
His disappearance was quickly noticed:

When the bug was fixed, Dorsey took the opportunity to reference the first Tweet ever made on Twitter and his first tweet:
