Matt Lauer’s Twitter, Facebook pages go dormant

It appears that either someone at NBC News or in Matt Lauer’s camp has deactivated or deleted his accounts on at least two major social media platforms — Facebook and Twitter.

Lauer’s official Twitter handle, @mlauer, is, as of 4:10 p.m. eastern time Nov. 30, 2017, displaying a “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” error.

Likewise, his Facebook page is showing a “Sorry, this content isn’t available right now” message.

The page automatically generated by Facebook, meanwhile, is still active, but this has no official connection to NBC or Lauer. 

Incidentally, the Twitter handle @mattlauer is registered to someone claiming to be a software developer in Pennsylvania, who has already been the subject of a flurry of mentions by users mistakenly tagging the wrong user.
