It looks like somebody on Scott Walker’s campaign team pulled the trigger a little early. Walker is set to announce he’s running for the presidency on Monday, not today:

There is some confusion, however, if the tweets was actually deleted. The tweet doesn’t show up on his timeline, but it is live if you have the URL:

Update. According to BuzzFeed, Twitter is to blame for the error:
A Twitter spokesman said Friday night that the tweet wasn’t the Walker campaign’s fault:
“We’re looking into today’s issue, and we’ve determined the Walker team was not at fault,” the spokesman said in a statement.
Twitter did not provide further information on what exactly happened.
