A Twitter account associated with Hillary Clinton's losing 2016 presidential campaign was briefly revived on Thursday, firing back at President Donald Trump with a snarky tweet.

@TheBriefing2016, which provided fact checks on behalf of the Clinton campaign, responded to a tweet form Trump, HuffPost reported.

Trump brought Clinton up on Twitter in a message about the investigation into ties between his campaign and Russian officials.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family [sic] and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" Trump tweeted.

The Briefing responded with a Ferris Bueller meme and the text, "You're still here?"

Before Thursday, the last time The Briefing had tweeted was Nov. 7, one day before Clinton's historic loss to Trump in the presidential election.

It is unclear who is operating the account and wrote its newest tweet.
