TL;DR: CoinSpice scours the Twittersphere to shine light upon the top crypto tweets of the week. The current dispatch of folly finds the obnoxious Bobby Lee claiming to have red-pilled action movie star Bruce Willis. The Winklevii’s exchange had second thoughts about associating with BitMEX at the exact wrong time. BTC users describe more horrors. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community raises BCH for South Sudan. Binance is run out of coffee shops around the world, and it’s time to FreeRoss.org.
Tweets of the Week: #9 Leave Bruce Willis Alone!
We at CoinSpice will take things that never happened for $1,000, Alex. Supposedly cryptocurrency hardware wallet shill Bobby Lee, brother of Litecoin’s Charlie Lee, was on the same flight with Hollywood legend Bruce Willis. Lee snapped an awkward candid photograph of Willis returning to his seat as proof of their fateful interaction.
Imagine spending hours and hours unable to escape near Bobby Lee clumsily attempting to convince you about magic internet beans. We cannot think of a worse fate for Willis. Come to Shanghai, they said. Take a flight from Los Angeles, they said. No word from the Die Hard franchise principal as to whether he’s gone down the rabbit hole only to emerge on a Bitcoin conference panel near you. Poor Bruce.

It has been over 10 hours and my bitcoin transaction still hasn't confirmed yet…
This is one of the main reasons btc has not gained mainstream adoption yet as a peer to peer electronic cash.
Imagine how users & businesses feel when it takes this long to confirm. pic.twitter.com/JzzudWbR0T

I have met Ross. He is a good human. His punishment is absurdly disproportionate to his crime. Anyone who cares about justice should be a signatory to this petition. https://t.co/Qkkm91wUmd
