Washington: Meet Bahtiyar Duysak, the former Twitter employee who says he was responsible for deactivating US President Donald Trump's account in early November.

The social networking site had blamed "human error" on behalf of an unnamed employee after Trump's personal Twitter account disappeared for 11 minutes on November 2.

 

Now, Duysak, in an interview with TechCrunch, claims he made a 'mistake'.

"In my opinion, it was definitely a mistake and if I am involved with this, I really apologise if I hurt anyone," he said, as reported by E! Online

"I didn't do anything on purpose but as I said, I had a wild time in America and I was tired sometimes and everyone can do mistakes."

Bahtiyar added, "I didn't hack anyone. I didn't do anything I wasn't authorized to do.I didn't do any crime."

He also talked about why he decided to come forward now.

"I just want to continue an ordinary life," the German citizen shared. "I had to delete hundreds of friends because reporters are stalking me. I just want to continue an ordinary life."
