November is a strange month for digital blunders, Facebook killed its CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other users and now we have Twitter, suspending its own CEO’s account by mistake. It was a short moment but caused a spur in the tech world.
The news was spotted by a former TechCrunch’er Drew Olanoff who noticed that @jack (CEO) was not accessible on Twitter.

Surprisingly, CEO’s account was locked for 2 to 3 hours. Jack clarified the situation by posting this tweet

What caused this panic, the reason is still unknown and Twitter has not clarified it yet.
