In some hilarious social media news, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had his own Twitter account suspended late Tuesday (Nov. 22).

Fortunately, it was just a mistake. Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter a decade ago, has since returned, saying the suspension was "an internal mistake".

By calling it "twttr", it's a play on Twitter's first tweet, which Dorsey posted back in March 2006: "just setting up my twttr."

He had more than 4 million followers before his account was suspended. Upon reinstatement, he had less than 150. As of press time, he had around 618,000 followers. FAIL!

Last week, Twitter suspended many accounts associated with the alt-right movement, which supports white supremism and white nationalism.
