TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. Hotep Jesus thinks the Bitcoin community is weird. BTC maximalists continue their purity testing. Facebook Coin Libra head hints at BTC not being a very good medium-of-exchange. Pomp plays both sides against the middle. Warning aimed at Casa Node users. Let Saif be Saif, and rats love fiat.
Tweets of the Week: #7 Hotep Jesus Says Y’all Weird
Brian Sharpe, known better as Hotep Jesus, is the most visible social media influencer representing the right-leaning African American political/philosophical movement. Hotep is neologism for black nationalism derived from an Egyptian word connoting being at peace, almost a greeting. It has since taken-on revisionist history, punditry, and a growing online presence for a more assertive kind of African American politics.
Hotep Jesus also dabbles in Bitcoin investing, and tried his hand at Crypto Twitter (CT) — a world unto its own. In particular, he’s had many run-ins with a group that roughly a year ago contentiously forked off from Bitcoin Cash. CT seized upon Hotep Jesus, and he’s found a way to push their buttons, living rent-free in their heads.
The Bitcoin community can't figure out what the real Bitcoin is.
This is truly funny to watch. 😂
Y'all weird. Establishment supposed to be the enemy and y'all wasting time arguing.
Shut up and code.

#6 BTC Maxis Continue to Purity Test
BTC maximalists are fighting again, and this time it’s over whether one of them should even attend a conference, much less sit on a panel, with personalities and projects considered excommunicated from the BTC maxi world. One calls the other a shitcoin enabler, while the other says he’s violating some unspoken conference pledge. Not. A. Cult.
I made a pledge to boycut @magicalcrypto because I find the concept of a #Bitcoin conference by shitcoiners hypocritical.
But I have NO PROBLEM defending $BTC against scammers on the same stage. Me NOT going only hurts attendees.
No one has to attended to watch https://t.co/zIqJ8TN21U

#5 Don’t Get Me Wrong
Don’t get me wrong. Already had a lot of appreciation for bitcoin well before I started on this journey, but appreciation is growing :). Just not a good medium of exchange (yet?).

#3 Several Undisclosed Vulnerabilities
FYI… based on several undisclosed vulnerabilities, I would recommend all Casa node users remove their assets from the device until further notice.
The clear text seed word transmission is a red flag, but there are multiple other red flags as well. https://t.co/qaLBCPQ8ky
