"We have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer-support employee who did this on the employee's last day. We are conducting a full internal review," Twitter said in a tweet.

"We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again," the company said in an earlier tweet.

A Twitter representative declined to comment further.

The ex-employee has been referred to as "the legend" for the 11 minutes of outage.

11 minutes of TOTAL GLORY!!!

I approve of all forms of non-violent civil disobedience, especially if they are clever.

I hope our hero doesn't get into serious legal trouble....
