American president, Donald Trump’s social media page was on November 2nd deactivated briefly in what was described as a rogue attack on the United States President.
The account was however restored after a while following the deactivation.
Coming weeks after the attack on the US President’s social media account, the Twitter employee responsible for the action has been identified.
Coming after the social media platform reported the glitch as an error, Twitter subsequently revealed that the action was taken by a contractor on his last day of work.
Following a global manhunt, authorities have revealed the former employee to be Bahtiyar Duysak, a German citizen of Turkish descent.
He revealed himself to TechCrunch stating that he worked for Twitter as a contractor with a firm named Pro Unlimited.
Duysak described his move as “a mistake” and told TechCrunch that he never thought the account would actually be deactivated.
He added that the deactivation process was a series of unspecified “coincidences”.
He added: “I had a wild time in America, I was tired sometimes. And everyone can do mistakes. I did a mistake.”
Speaking further, he added that a Twitter user had reported Trump for abuse on his final day.
“As a final, throwaway gesture, he put the wheels in motion to deactivate it.
“Then he closed his computer and left the building.”
