The @Bitcoin Twitter account that boasts almost one mln Twitter followers has officially abandoned the bigger block camp by demonstratively unfollowing its leader Roger Ver. On Aug. 20, the handle denounced Bitcoin Cash and deleted all tweets, which mentioned the contested Bitcoin fork.
Bitcoin’s new tune
Ver, who has a nasty reputation for pitting Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Core proponents against each other, was considered to be the one in charge of @Bitcoin. Although “Bitcoin Jesus” denied his involvement back in 2018, he did admit that he knew the person behind that account.
Back then, his tweet was taken with a grain of salt, but now it is evident that Ver has no control of the situation. When Ver was asked whether there was anything the community could do to change the owner’s mind, he simply replied: “Don’t know.”
@Bitcoin remains a breeding ground for crypto conspiracy theories with some suggesting that the account could be simply handed/sold to Bitcoin Core supporters. It now features a link to the original Bitcoin white paper.
Recently, the @Bitcoin Twitter handle also parted ways with controversial Tron CEO Justin Sun and the Winklevoss twins. Even though the Winklevii are among the biggest supporters of Bitcoin, their “Crypto Needs Rules” campaign that highlighted the need for more regulations stirred some criticism within the Bitcoin community.
