1/ The reason people are confused about what's going on and can't find the trail is simply because @TheBlueMatt is being dramatic. I wasn't going respond directly because it's so stupid, but it would be worse to not clarify and invite speculation. 🤦‍♂️ #BitcoinDrama
2/ By making a massive deal out of blocking me (Matt, you couldn’t just write it, but had to take a screenshot of Twitter UI showing the block - which is literally TEXT in a blue bar), people are wondering if I kicked his dog or worse. Now there’s a CoinDesk article. Geez.
3/ The starting point was this thread from @nwoodfine . TL;DR: #Bitcoin is very important, attracts scammers and frauds, & a culture has evolved to defend against bad actors / attacks. He went on to say if you can't accept that culture then too bad.

Yoo! Wazzup plebs? I know, I know... Warren Buffet is a sucker.. But fuck him, it's #BitcoinMonday again!
Issue #3

Let's goo 🎉
Talking about price, last couple of weeks were quite interesting to watch. But when it comes to #BitcoinTwitter, things are kinda quiet.

In fact, tweets about bitcoin are at their 5 year all time low.
Maybe BT is quiet, but on the streets things are looking much better than 5 years ago. And this fantastic read by @CremeDeLaCrypto shows us just that. Bitcoin is a demographic gigameg! 💪💪

#BitcoinTwitter and #CryptoTwitter! Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem. Work from anywhere, report directly to me, and we can even pay you in bitcoin! Introducing @SqCrypto. Why?
Last week I was considering my hack week project, and asked @brockm: “what is the most impactful thing we could do for the bitcoin community?” His answer was simple: “pay people to make the broader crypto ecosystem better.” This resonated with me immediately, so we’re doing it.
This will be Square’s first open source initiative independent of our business objectives. These folks will focus entirely on what’s best for the crypto community and individual economic empowerment, not on Square’s commercial interests. All resulting work will be open and free.

Jack Dorsey made waves yesterday, as he took #BitcoinTwitter by storm to participate in the grassroots Lightning Network (LN) Torch campaign. Onlookers suggested that Dorsey is now fully “one of us”, but just exactly who is Jack Dorsey?

- @coindesk research
He is the world renown tech entrepreneur who created a social media giant and a widely-used payment service, that has enabled BTC. He’s a darling of Silicon Valley and a successful businessman.

He is also the avatar of censorship, especially of those on the right of the politics. Twitter has censored users to such an extent that it was part of his testimony before the U.S. gov't. Square / Cash App followed in banning “controversial” accounts too.
