President Donald Trump took to social media to blow up Facebook, Google, and Twitter, say the tech giants ‘on the side of the Radical Leftist Democrats.’

Facebook has apologized to President Donald Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino Jr, for temporarily limiting his account for a couple of hours by automated bots on the platform.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, a Facebook spokesperson apologized for the error, and adds that sometimes the limit of repeated, identical activity of an account can have “unintended consequences.”

“To prevent automated bots, we limit the amount of identical, repetitive activity in a single account in a short period of time, such as an @mention of the people,” the spokesman told Fox News. “These limits, it may be an unintended consequence of temporarily preventing real people like Dan Scavino of participation in such activities, but a lift in an hour or two, that’s what happened in this case. We are in contact with him and apologized for the inconvenience.”

A source familiar with the situation told Fox News that the social network is “active” and improve the messages to users who may be in the problems like this.

Trump took to Twitter, a platform he used to beat earlier in the day on the side of the radical left-wing Democrats,” to say that he is “looking forward to this,” although he did not explain what that meant.

On Monday evening, Scavino said on Facebook that his page had been blocked without prior notice.
