Twitter suspended accounts of popular crypto influencers by mistake.
Early last Wednesday, Twitter suspended a number of accounts owned by top influencers in the cryptocurrency industry. The development ignited lots of concerns amongst the crypto users on the platform owing to the reality that Twitter is considered a crypto-friendly social platform. Furthermore, Jack Dorsey, the chief executive officer of the platform, is one of the biggest supporters of cryptocurrency.
Major Cryptocurrency Accounts are Suspended
Twitter users have noticed that seven accounts, belonging to popular cryptocurrency analysts and traders have been suspended last Wednesday. Some of the accounts that have been suspended include @100trillionUSD, @KoroushAK, @mmcrypto, @TheCryptoDog, @themooncarl, and @woonomic. As of now, the message on these profiles read that “Twitter suspends accounts which violated the Twitter Rules.”
After many complaints that were raised by crypto users on the platform, other suspended accounts have been restored, including that of Willy Woo (@woonomic), a famous Bitcoin and cryptocurrency analyst, and PlanB (@100trillionUSD), who had invented the Bitcoin Stock-to-flow (S2F), model. Some accounts like @KoroushAK and @wsbchairman are to be restored as of now.
Twitter flagged crypto accounts as spam by mistake.
While acknowledging the situation in a letter to Willy Woo, Twitter noted that the accounts were not suspended permanently.
Although this is not the first time crypto accounts and contents are being suspended or censored by a centralized platform. In the past months, many crypto channels were suspended on YouTube and this is not the last of it.
