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.

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