Identity Of The Man Who Deactivated Trump's Twitter Account Has Been Revealed

This is the man who deleted Donald Trump's Twitter account on his last day at work

According to, says that the 20-something year old Duysak has "German-born citizen with Turkish roots who was finishing his USA work and study visa working as a customer support contractor for Twitter's Trust and Safety division which handles user reports of bad behavior on the microblogging platform".

Duysak, whose identity was first revealed by TechCrunch, declined to give details of exactly how he took down the account but insisted he didn't do anything illegal. As for his reasons for deactiving Trump's account, it seemed like it was somewhat done on a whim - and had far-reaching consequences that he probably didn't expect.

Bahtiyar added, "I didn't hack anyone". I didn't do anything which I wasn't authorised to do. People questioned how Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) could enable one person to take down such a high-profile account with tens of millions of followers.

The incident on November 2 caused some to worry about how much power and influence employees at social media companies possess. Twitter says it won't comment on a former employee, but says it has taken steps to keep something like this from happening again.

Trump's account came his way because it had been a reported by another user, he said.

Duysak said that he is unhappy about the notoriety he has gained since November 2.

'I just want to continue ordinary life. In September, Twitter said that it allows certain content to remain on the service - even if a tweet otherwise violates its rules - if there is "a legitimate public interest in its availability". He said that the clause about newsworthiness, which was not publicly known until Twitter made it so, was one of those gaps.

'Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee's last day. "At the same time, I'm not a rogue person". We are conducting a full internal review'.

Duysak is back in Germany now. It was a "mistake", he said, not part of some overarching political plan. "I don't want to flee from the media", he said.

The President's account, which has nearly 42 million followers has proved to be a vital tool in the way Mr Trump communicates to the outside work, it being the main channel of communication he uses to disseminate statements and attack his critics.

"It's all about a number of coincidences, with very, very little probabilities that randomly occurred on my last day", Duysak told TechCrunch, explaining how the account was temporarily shutdown. I've worked for so many companies.
