The customer support employee whom Twitter blamed for briefly deactivating President Trump's account earlier this month says the entire ordeal was a "mistake."
In what appears to be his first interview since the Nov. 2 incident, Bahtiyar Duysak explained that at the end of his last shift working as a contractor, he had received a complaint about Trump's Twitter account and had queued it up for consideration to be deactivated.
However, Duysak, who spoke with Tech Crunch in Germany, where he is from, explained that he didn't expect that the account would eventually be deactivated.
The report mentions that though sometimes tweets from public figures like Trump violate Twitter's terms of service, because of their "newsworthiness" that policy can be put aside.
Duysak, who was temporarily in the U.S. under a work and study visa, asserted that he didn't do anything wrong.
“I didn’t hack anyone. I didn’t do anything that I was not authorized to do,” Duysak said. “I didn’t go to any site I was not supposed to go to. I didn’t break any rules.”
Duysak’s legal representative told Tech Crunch that his client is not being investigated by the FBI. The report also mentions that the media has repeatedly attempted to track Duysak down and that Twitter too appears to be looking for more information from him.
When Trump's account when dark for 11 minutes, it sparked a social media uproar, with some praising the person behind the incident. Twitter's initial investigation found that it was a Twitter customer support employee behind the deactivation and said that it was "conducting a full internal review."
