I had several spicy BTC tweets scheduled when my account got suspended 🙂 #ConspiracyTheory
Does Twitter think you are a robot too?
Reddit's better anyway 😉
What is the official reason you got banned?
He says too many nice things about Ethereum for Jack Dorsey’s liking
scammers get banned, live with it.
It still amuses me how a lot of the famous figureheads and project leads in crypto still relies on completely centralized services for communication, when there are perfectly fine alternatives that are decentralized but just go ignored because there are no blockchain buzzwords associated with it. No, you don't need Twitter and Medium to reach your audience when a simple website / blog / federated social media site exist.
I've sent a message to Nick and I can extend it to Evan as well: let me know if you'd like an account at a professional Mastodon hosting server that won't be locking you out capriciously. Hell, if you want to setup your own domain I can help set up a server and we can hopefully get all of CT into a more decent place.
This is a good point. But also the fact that there are simply a ton of people already on twitter makes their use of that platform more understandable.
Sure, I get the network effects of Twitter. Medium, though…
Anyway, my point is not "don't use twitter because it is evil and centralized" is "why don't we organize ourselves to hedge against these potential threats and accidents?"
If we had a reasonable good number of people that were still using twitter and also mirroring their posts to something like Mastodon/Pleroma, then the infrastructure would already be in place and CT wouldn't be so dependent on a single entity.
If the idea is to get your message out there, it isn't up to you to decide if people make the effort to get your message.
It is amusing but also necessary. All the solutions in crypto are easy to imagine within 5 minutes of understanding satoshi's white paper. But the motivation to actually do them only comes from strife.
It took 15 month war of ideas for people to move away from bitcointalk and /r/bitcoin , after so many were needlessly banned in a CCP-esque fashion. "promoting another chain, disunity"
Now it is very distributed across chat groups, chat platforms, social media platforms, subreddits. But if it could be distributed across decentralized services, that would be interesting too (interesting to wade through the trash I'm sure).
For now, its the decentralized networks that have a lack of users. because they have a lack of budget and not a clear enough differentiating utility for people to want to use that religiously.
Is there a social media website on eth yet?
I've been looking for a crypto mastodon instance but I'm worried it'll be full of shitty crypto memes, dumb tribal warfare and news about how craig wright is a fraud for the 9 millionth time.
Don't "join a crypto mastodon", then.
This idea that each instance of Mastodon should be insular and reflect some sort of tribe is something very misunderstood by the current crop of Mastodon users. An ActivityPub service should be no different than an email provider. We don't go around shopping for an email service based on "who else is part of the group", we simply get an email service that is reliable and that lets us send/receive email from anyone else.
The idea is to join the fediverse and connect to like-minded people, no matter where they are. If that is what you want, I'd be glad to help.
Pretty sure I hit 'like' on a Nick Johnson post yesterday.
Edit: Nick Johnson is currently @wekabot on Twitter. Not sure if that is his original handle or not.
He created a new Twitter account because his normal one has been suspended for weeks.
Because the Socialists at twitter think they're superior to God
It is my belief There is no God. It is my belief Code is law. I suggest you Don’t wait to eat the pizza.
Edit- clarified this is my point of view and not statement of facts
That's a pretty arrogant thing to say considering you have not left planet earth.
I've been banned from Twitter last year because I jokingly said "i will send 100eth to the first 10 people who will send me a quantum computer and a thank you note"
Twitter thought I was a scammer
Why did they get banned?
