Overheard on Twitter

For laughs, fights, or genuinely useful information, let’s see what the most popular tweets pertaining to Ethereum for the past day were:

  • From VitalikButerin:

    @Narodism @musalbas @MPtherealMVP @NickSzabo4 So you dislike the aesthetics of some people in the ethereum community (btw I’ve never done a burner party, LSD or a sex orgy) therefore ethereum has lost the plot? If I wanted to I could make similar caricatures about the whole “rah rah I’m manly because I eat steak” thing.

  • From ercwl:

    I follow a lot of Bitcoin accounts and a lot of Ethereum accounts. I’m noticing that currently Ethereum accounts are a bit “stronger” than Bitcoin accounts. More articulate, more well-versed with the other side’s arguments, better at making the other side seem less knowledgeable.

  • From worthalter:

    My @discord account was suspended this morning because I sent too many private messages to people that wanted their @poapxyz šŸŽ– to recall the @ethereum medalla testnet launch. Please help me making this visible to the discord support team so they know Iā€™m no spammer šŸ™šŸ»
