Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was accidentally given the same punishment as online trolls Tuesday night when he was banned from Twitter.

Dorsey was cut off from Twitter and his 1.42 million followers for about 15 minutes Tuesday night before his account was reinstated.

The tweet he sent Tuesday night made reference to the now infamous first tweet he posted back when Twitter was known as Twttr.

And with that, all now appears to be right again in the Twitterverse.
