On Tuesday, Litecoin’s founder Charlie Lee tweeted that the Bitcoin Twitter handle has stopped supporting the Bitcoin Cash community and removed all tweets about BCH. However, the pinned one remains.

The WhalePanda user has also been noticed expressing his ideas on the matter, tweeting that ‘the confusing BCH propaganda has been deleted from @Bitcoin’ and that is good news.

The BTC-BCH war is taking a new turn

The war between Bitcoin and its Bitcoin Cash fork has been going since BCH appeared in the summer of 2017. Back then, the man known as ‘Bitcoin Jesus’, Roger Ver, switched sides and started supporting Bitcoin Cash only, calling it the only real peer-to-peer digital currency.

The owner of the Bitcoin Twitter account seemed to provide support for the Bitcoin Cash community until now.

Some believed that Roger Ver was the owner of the account, though last year he made a public statement rejecting that.

Despite the @Bitcoin account’s support for BCH, one of its co-owners tweeted that ‘Bitcoin Cash is dead’. Now it seems that this man’s opinion has been taken up as a target to be headed for.
