This afternoon we published an article about the Bitcoin Twitter page being suspended. Since posting, it now seems that the Bitcoin Twitter account is now up and running again, to the surprise of many and seemingly, to the frustration of Lightning Network Investor, Jack. According to Bitcoin, the following happened-
Jack, has failed to respond to this tweet thus far, as have Twitter Support, either way, why on earth and more importantly, how on earth could somebody like Jack actually disable a Twitter account to give the handle to somebody else. Since Jack seems to be labelled as a âcompetitorâ his motives may be quite clear, but even so how could this happen? This isnât a rhetorical question, I am genuinely perplexed right now.
In any case, I'd love to hear a public explanation from @twittersupport about why #bitcoin competitor #LightningNetwork investor @jack disabled this account, gave it to someone else, only to return it in the face of public backlash with 750,000 fewer followers. #censorshipâ Bitcoin (@Bitcoin) April 9, 2018
Bitcoin continued to arouse speculation with this tweet, which suggests that there has been some sort of hack involved here. This seems to have happened as a result of some sort of war, although we canât really tell who has instigated it. Maybe however, in an even more unlikely turn of events, the Bitcoin page is still being managed by somebody else and these tweets have been uploaded as a mask. Honestly, I have no idea whatâs going on right now. Is it censorship, is it a case of âmy dads bigger than your dadâ or is it actually a case of a genuine hack and theft of Bitcoinâs profile? There doesnât seem to be any news from Twitter at the moment but we do expect more news to arise over the next few days, when it does, check back here, we have you covered.
