Matt Lauer's Twitter is gone.?
Newsweek reporter Ryan Sit tweeted about the development, showing an error page for Lauer's former account on the Twitter mobile app.?
J.D. Durkin, White House correspondent for Cheddar, also tweeted about the development with a screenshot from a desktop chartph.computer.?
That page can appear if an account is deleted or if it's suspended. Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for chartph.comment. The chartph.company does not typically chartph.comment on the events of individual accounts.?
It's likely that Lauer chose to remove it. Twitter has been full of critical reactions to the inappropriate sexual behavior reported by Variety and The New York Times. Old TV segments of Lauer spread virally on Twitter in the hours following the reports. Lauer wouldn't be the first celebrity to abandon Twitter due to personal attacks.?
Lauer released a statement early Thursday in response to the allegations.?
“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions," the statement reads. "To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry."
