TOP CRYPTO TWEETS: Blockstream CSO & Lady Friend Censor, SJW Threatens Antonopoulos, Bitcoin Dash?

TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. BTC maximalists continue to censor expression, and Blockstream CSO Samson Mow, along with his lady friend, is putting on a clinic. Andreas Antonopoulos is threated by a social justice warrior. Crypto veteran and Dash enthusiast Amanda Johson proposes Bitcoin Cash + Dash = Bitcoin Dash, and so much more in this installment. 

Tweets of the Week: #7 Blockstream CSO and Lady Friend Still Salty About Being Memed

Our #3 Spiciest Person of Year, Joshua Davis, better known as @karbonbased online, has been locked out of his Twitter account. If you’re unfamiliar with the drama up to this point, old karbonbased hit the meme motherload with a hilarious juxtaposition of the You vs. the Guy She Told You Not to Worry About format. Blockstream CSO Samson Mow was the intended target, and the meme sent to karbon had Mow hugging a child’s toy while his lady friend, Ms. Seiche, posed with a character deemed “Gym Friend,” a beefy dude many years her senior.

Mow erupted, claiming karbon stepped over Mow’s personal line, attacking his best girl. Words like “sexist” were flung around, as was “misogynist.” Most understood Mow, a notoriously cruel troll who once equated Edward Snowden’s worth to that of a mere “shitcoin shill,” was being tactical, attempting to gain sympathy among those easily triggered. It didn’t work. Even BTC maximalists questioned Mow’s butthurt, hoping he’d chalk it up to internet fun and being a public crypto personality who flaunts his relationship online.

CoinSpice YouTube channel host, Collin Enstad of Collin’ It Like It Is, has been keeping track of the fallout. Apparently, Ms. Seiche, Mow’s lady friend, has lawyered up, hectoring and cajoling Twitter to deal with @karbonbased via the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) on privacy grounds. A couple of choice words, a keen legalistic turn of phrase, a law firm letterhead and, well, Bob’s your uncle: Twitter will buckle for no other reason than expediency. Textbook BTC maximalist censorship and social media gaming. So much for the principle of censorship resistance.
