Whoops!Twitter Ban CEO's Handle After Hate Speech Crack Down
That awkward moment you ban the Twitter boss from his own Twitter account...
Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey says the social media platform accidentally suspended his account this week.
Thankfully they were quick to fix their own error and Dorsey was able to send a tweet on Tuesday night.
"just setting up my twttr.again (account suspension was an internal mistake)."
The post was an echo of his first-ever tweet, which came in 2006.

San Francisco-based Twitter suspended the accounts of several prominent members of the so-called "alt-right" in an apparent crack down on accounts tied to hate speech or threats of violence.
Twitter declined comment, but noted its policies against hate speech and harassment.
Some supporters of the movement cheered Dorsey's brief suspension with celebratory tweets on Tuesday.
