Tuesday evening, the Twitter account of company co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey was briefly suspended on the site. By 2:15 AM GMT, Dorsey’s account was back online with a reset follower account.

Last week, Twitter simultaneously banned a number of figures from the so-called “alt-right,” an action white nationalist Richard Spencer decried as “corporate Stalinism.” On Tuesday, Twitter users associated with movement celebrated Dorsey’s suspension.

“AHAHA @Jack Dorsey got suspended from his own platform 😂😂😂,” wrote one. “MEME MAGIC IS REAL FOLKS 🚨”

According to Dorsey, his suspension was due to “an internal mistake.”
