Twitter last week took action to crackdown on trolling on the social network, but now it appears to have accidently taken things a little too far.

The account of Twitter co-founder and chief executive Jack Dorsey was suspended in error early on Wednesday morning

Was someone trying to make a point? It seems not, with just an "internal mistake" to blame, we're told.

"just setting up my twttr…again (account suspension was an internal mistake)" said Dorsey in a tweet once his account was restore, referencing not only his first ever tweet which said "just setting up my twttr", but the first tweet ever on the site.

Clearly, Twitter's working on addressing its online abuse problem, but it's apparently not all plain sailing trying to get ity done.
