Mt. Gox CEO Returns to Twitter, Infuriates Burned Investors

•, By Robert McMillan

After a long absence, the Mt Gox CEO has returned to Twitter with a bizarre string of tone-deaf tweets that were either written by a Turing test chat bot, or by a man completely oblivious to the economic chaos he has wrought. His first message after losing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of bitcoins? "What would we do without busybox?"—a reference to a slimmed-down Linux operating system used on devices such as routers. He's also Tweeted about a noodle dish called yakisoba and Japanese transportation systems.

Though he and Mt. Gox have said virtually nothing of substance about the exchange's problems, Karpeles seems to think the internet will happily retweet his thoughts on the weather, and that speaks to the strangely disassociated character of the man who build the world's most successful bitcoin exchange, and then lost it all.
