The Twitter account belonging to Fox News political pundit Sean Hannity appeared to have been temporarily deactivated Saturday morning.
Hannity, who tweets from the verified handle @seanhannity, posted a mysterious message just after midnight on Friday, reading "Form Submission 1649 | #Hannity."
Form Submission 1649 | #Hannity

By early Sunday morning, @seanhannity did not bring up any search results on Twitter.

Hannity's Twitter account was later restored.
It's not clear why Hannity's Twitter account was deleted, or what "Form Submission 1649" means. Neither Twitter nor Hannity has offered an explanation.
