The Twitter account belonging to Fox News host Sean Hannity vanished on Friday evening after an intense episode of his show focusing on corruption in the Department of Justice and the FBI — and a very strange tweet.
The final tweet before his account disappeared read, “Form Submission 1649.”
Those who attempted to access his feed were met with a blank account or an error message that read “Sorry, that page does not exist.”
There has been speculation online that he was either hacked or deactivated by a rogue employee, but neither theory has been confirmed.
We have reached out to someone from Hannity’s team and will update this story when more information is available.
UPDATE: Screen image of Hannity’s Twitter account accessed via mobile shows his account has been scrubbed. Accessing via computer brings up the blue screen not found page.

Several dubious accounts have been opened late Friday/early Saturday claiming to be Hannity. No official word from Hannity has been reported as of 3 a.m. CST.
