Sam-Bankman Fried, Elon Musk, punk6529 all have something to say this week — and not everyone wants to hear it.
"Yes, it's the Twitter round-up, where we showcase the very worst of the worst tweets from the past seven days. Get ready to be horrified, disgusted, and maybe even a little entertained as we expose the Twitterverse. You won't believe what people are posting online, so sit back, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the show!"
Who Went Viral This Time?
Yet another thread!, you cry out in agony. Yes, punk6529 is an institution of Crypto Twitter, so if he threads, we listen. And if you’re too lazy reading the whole thing because you muted anything SBF-related, tweet no.36 contains the sauce: “36/ Finally, what does this have to do with crypto? Well, close to nothing. This is a failure of the custodial system, not the non-custodial system.”
Phew, good to know!
Don’t worry if you don’t understand a thing. That’s Ethereum, so trust Vitalik and all will be fine.
Moving on to the spicy part…
Who Is Arguing In Way Too Public A Place?
The Crypto Twitter drama these days is all about these three men:
- Mario Nawfal
Let’s start with influenza-turned-citizen-journalist Ben Armstrong aka Bitboy. After his visit to the Bahamas, there are some, ahem, interesting developments taking place:
So, uhm, Bitboy is now one of the good guys? Wasn’t he following the classic shill-and-dump influencer business model? FatManTerra reminds us that Saulus may not be Paulus yet:
He doubled down on his position after Bitboy hit back:
Citizen journalism or shameless marketing campaign? You be the judge.
Pretty much the same can be said for exhibit B in the “controversial Crypto Twitter influencers” collection: Mario Nawfal.
It didn’t stop Mario from hosting another Space with Elon later this week, so this is probably not the last bit of flak he got…
Elon Building Twitter
The Elon-building-Twitter juggernaut continued at full speed last week.
And in the middle of all of this, Crypto Twitter pitched in with a few useful suggestions on what should be improved:
Nope, Twitter is definitely not dead. It’s probably never been more alive…
Saylor Saying Stuff
Nothing too interesting from Michael Saylor this week, but he did share a couple of nice (AI-generated?) visual summaries of his stance on Bitcoin:
Presumably hope that it outperforms Ethereum dies last…
Talk of the Town
wsj gud paper
- The everywhere-FUD
- The SBF apology psyop
- The viral AI chatbot
First, the FUD.
No shortage of potential FUD victims. First, it was Nexo potentially going down:
Or how about some CZ FUD?
Now that the FUD’s out of the way, we can focus on the second big topic: Sam Bankman-Fried’s crocodile tears.
So, how did the interview go?
Well, depends on who you ask. Not too well, according to Nic Carter:
Or pretty well, according to FatManTerra:
But both FinTwit and Crypto Twitter agreed that SBF was and is a crook:
Only Kevin O’Leary didn’t get the message (again):
The Sam Bankman-Fried Remedy Tour 2022 probably isn’t done yet, but Crypto Twitter would do itself a service to move on from it to more interesting topics…
…such as artificial intelligence:
Not everyone on Crypto Twitter appreciates the AI’s creativity when it comes to creating poems:
Our Favorite Coinfession
This week’s Coinfession is beautiful and brutal and bamboozling all at once:
Your friends’ mothers are not your exit liquidity, anon…
Wrapping it up with a couple of relevant memes about…
The government’s approach to safeguarding your finances:
SBF’s unexpected transformation:
See you next week, fellow chatbot-enjoyooor
