Crypto-Twitter juggles censorship, freedom of expression after launch of 'WeAreAllBitcoin' c


Even though the Craig Wright-Calvin Ayre fiasco hasn't quite ended, crypto Twitter has found itself in another mess which has put the ethos of cryptocurrency and Twitters ToS at stake. The user of "@Bitcoin", a Twitter account that represents Bitcoin, is at the centre of this mess.

The @Bitcoin account was allegedly found promoting/shilling Bitcoin Cash according to some users, including Peter McCormack, Whale Panda, and Jimmy Song, among others, which didn't sit well with others.

This has divided the crypto community into people who are against @Bitcoin and people who support him/her/them. The people who support the handle believe that the account wasn't "sold" and that suspending/banning it would amount to censorship.
