Users of the social networking service surfing his profile earlier today found out his account had been suspended.
Today, Twitter briefly suspended the account of its co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey.
Dorsey himself called the incident “an internal mistake”.
He tweeted: “Just setting up my twttr…again (account suspension was an internal mistake)“.

For about 15 minutes those trying to access Dorsey’s account kept receiving a message stating its suspension.
Only the company can suspend accounts, though users can deactivate their own.
The incident came as the micro-blogging giant is struggling to increase its user base and seeking a path to profitability.
Co-founder Dorsey returned as chief executive last year but has yet to ignite growth.
Just weeks after reporting job cuts and a disappointing fiscal quarter, Twitter announced earlier this month that chief operating officer Adam Bain was leaving the company.
Twitter was widely reported to be in talks to find a buyer but no deal has materialized.
