What happened to the HelpfulDuo account?

Edit: The user account seems to be back again now, an hour later.

This user account, which was started some time back as a way for Duolingo staff to inform users (see, for example, a lot of the stickied threads under the Popular tab, as well as this one from yesterday) seems to have been deactivated yesterday or today.

What's up?

If it's not a new bug, then I bet for a "mis-click" by staff.

Or maybe he's just not feeling that helpful anymore... X-P

are readable, both in my account as well as without log in.

OK, so they are for me now as well! An hour ago they just said "deactivated account". Someone must have leaned on a switch somewhere... :-)

Thanks for the good news, Pentaan!
