Donald Trump’s Twitter account broke down on Thursday night, and the world immediately rejoiced – for five minutes, at least.

According to several reports, it was unclear what caused the brief outage of Trump’s page, which boasts over 40 million followers, and Twitter has yet to explain whether the account was hacked or it was a technical glitch.

According to TIME, Trump and the White House have yet to issue an official response to the incident – but perhaps the president will take to Twitter soon to address it.
