So, the guy that deactivated the President’s Twitter account earlier this month is trying to sell you some BS that it was an accident and he didn’t do anything wrong. This is what happens when you hire some garbage contractor who doesn’t vet their employees.

Are you buying his crap story? I’m not.


A Twitter contractor admitted he “put the wheels in motion” that caused President Donald Trump’s Twitter account to go offline earlier this month. Bahtivar Duysak, a German-born and raised man of Turkish decent, told TechCrunch that he was living in the U.S. on a work/study visa. He admitted during an interview in Germany that he was responsible for the “mistake” that caused the Twitter world to panic — or in some cases jump for joy. Four weeks after the 11-minute outage, Duysak spoke to TechCrunch about what happened that day.

Sigh, more trump twitter stuff, at least it's not him saying something stupid.

I think it was the guys last day and he had the ability to do it so he did. Who hasn't stolen the bathroom key on the last day of their job, I mean c'mon!

I’m shocked that he even commented publicly on the matter. Seems like it would be in his best interest to become an overnight recluse.

His deed of disabling the account was probably his own idea, but it is hard to believe that his work did not pass through some sort of vetting process to get engaged.

Technology often is an unprincipled bitch that needs to be poked with a stick before it is embraced.

So, what does the Trump crowd want to happen to the employee?

Fired? Jail time? Or just straight to the gallows?

There was a vetting process, I heard his interview yesterday - might find a script - and he said that about 3 to 4 people have to press buttons to deactivate an account. Human errors en masse, I guess.

Edit: this might be the interview (in German lang): youtube, I can't check it out right now.

Was a hero. He chickened out at the last minute. Seizing victory and reversing it to defeat.

Ha ha. Can you yell out in court?
Can you stand up in a college class and start singing the star spangled banner?
Will your mother let you curse at the dinner table?
See there's free speech and then there's appropriate speech.
And honestly I look at his tweets as a form of free entertainment if the truth be told.
Our family has a long series of jokes we keep coming back to and using like great lines from a movie. Covfefe for all !!!
