SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The account of Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey was briefly suspended last night because of what he called “an internal mistake.”
“Just setting up my twttr…again (account suspension was an internal mistake),” Dorsey tweeted late Tuesday.

For about 15 minutes those trying to access Dorsey’s account received a message stating that the account was suspended.
Only the social networking company can suspend Twitter accounts, though users can deactivate their own.
The incident came as Twitter is struggling to increase its user base and seeking a path to profitability.
