Jack Dorsey against Twitter, and pro Bitcoin

Yesterday the founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, criticized his own company and promoted Bitcoin again. 

The most curious thing is the tweet criticizing the choice of Twitter itself with regard to an article in the New York Post (NYP) about Joe Biden’s son.

Dorsey wrote:

“Our communication around our actions on the NYP article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable”.

Twitter had in fact taken action against the article because of its internal policy. 

The article was entitled “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad”, and the company blocked both sharing and sending it via private message. 

According to NYP journalist Noah Manskar, even the newspaper’s official Twitter account, @nypost, was blocked, and that must have pissed Dorsey off. 

The fact is that the company probably did nothing more than apply its policies verbatim, so Dorsey’s criticism is directed precisely at these policies. Evidently, he considers them too restrictive, and too limited in terms of freedom of information. 

Does Jack Dorsey prefer Bitcoin to Twitter?

Moreover, in a previous tweet he promoted a Feministcoalition initiative to help the #EndSARS campaign in Nigeria.

The initiative is also raising funds in bitcoin, which is why Dorsey shared it, commenting: 

“Donate via Bitcoin to help #EndSARS”. 

However, there is another important clue that suggests that Bitcoin is perhaps becoming even more important to Dorsey compared to Twitter. 

In fact, the biography of Dorsey’s official profile, @jack, now has only one thing written on it: “#bitcoin”

This is the official personal Twitter profile of the founder of Twitter himself, as well as the company’s CEO. 

In the description of the profile, there is no mention of Twitter. The only text is Bitcoin. 

Among other things, a few days ago the other company of which he is founder and CEO, Square, announced that it has invested a whopping $50 million in BTC. 

Now the turning point of Jack Dorsey towards Bitcoin seems definitive, and he is on the verge of becoming the new “Bitcoin Jesus”.
