Gable Tostee didn't take the stand but has taken to a Facebook to answer some questions about the night his Tinder date, Warriena Wright, fell to her death from his Gold Coast balcony.

Mr Tostee, under his new name Eric Thomas, responded to a range of questions put to him and partner Lizzie Evans in a Facebook forum on Tuesday - but answered only a bare few about his high-profile case.

The 30-year-old received a host of abuse over his actions on the night of August 7, 2014, as well as his conduct in last month's Supreme Court trial where he was found not guilty of the New Zealand tourist's death.

But Tostee said there was no lack of remorse for what occurred.

He said it was "intelligence" that made him not peer over his balcony once the 26-year-old lost her grip and plunged 14 floors to her death.

The former Gold Coast carpet-layer admitted he did not know why he had Ms Wright's phone in his pocket when he left his apartment to wonder around Surfers Paradise as emergency crews investigated.

"Only reason I can think of is that I took it by mistake as I rushed out of the apartment," he posted.

"I didn't even realise I had it until later when I was in the car. It was turned in to police later that day and forensically examined for signs of tampering obviously."
