He admitted to an interview in Germany that he was responsible for “fault” due to which Twitter caused panic to the world – or in some cases jumping for happiness, four weeks after the 11-minute outage, Duysak spoke to TechCrunch, what happened on November 2.
“I didn’t hack anyone, I didn’t do anything that was not authorized to do me,” Duysak told TechCrunch recently, “I didn’t go to any site that I didn’t know. I didn’t break any rules Gave. ”
Twitter cited human error and responded to the outage and said that it is investigating the incident.
Duysak told TechCrunch that information is requested from Twitter, but that he has not chosen the answer, and that the FBI has not investigated it.
Why did he disable Donald Trump’s Twitter account?
This was the last day of Dussek in customer support in the social media company. He was leaving his position to return to his home in Germany.

According to TechCrunch, Duysak said that he was contacted a few hours later by a woman he knew hardly. She asked about his relationship with Trump’s Twitter account.
Duysak said that he was in disbelief until he gave the news and realized what he had done.
Why is Duysak now talking about this?
Duysak told TechCrunch that he is finally talking about this event because journalists have consistently followed him and he wants to meet with his life.
“I didn’t do any crime or anything evil, but I feel like Pablo Escobar,” said Duysak.
Twitter refused to talk about the details surrounding the accident or to inquire about TechCrunch to confirm the identity of Duysak.
