Yesterday Twitter suspended Anthony Pompliano, co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital. It was a matter of hours before I was active again, but the experience is worth telling.
The commonly known “Pomp” is creditor of an important reputation within the world of cryptocurrencies. Thanks to this, this social network action generated a wave of speculation while the suspension lasted.
Some theories to explain it emerged from the same users. For example, one of them said that on the same day, Pompliano had used a viral tweet from Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg attacking President Trump as a self-promotion for his podcast. Maybe this was not liked by Twitter.
Pompliano enjoys a rather curious personality, because when he was back online around 4:28 PM EST (19:28 UTC), he made a tweet with the hashtag #FreePomp and a link to Mase’s “Welcome Back” music video.
Twitter had not given any official explanation so far about this fact. However, it is not the first time that Twitter’s relationship with characters from the world of cryptocurrencies has been hostile. In 2018, the social network banned the advertising of this industry.
What can we say about Pompliano?
If you have not heard his name, it is because you have not read much about cryptocurrencies, since he is one of the most cited analysts and characters within the cryptocurrency. Pompliano is a strong supporter of cryptocurrencies in general and Bitcoin in particular.
Earlier this week, he declared that the price of BTC was already on its way to $ 100,000. Hopefully if this is true in the medium term, with halving getting closer.
Other important names in the world of cryptocurrencies celebrated Pompliano’s return to Twitter. Among them we have Justin Sun (founder of TRON), Changpeng Zhao (CEO of Binance), Web Smith (2PM), etc.
Also, there were other jocular comments after the incident, some of the most prominent are the following: “We did not know what to do without you”, to which the CEO of Binance responds “It’s like losing a second Satoshi”. Obviously with this we notice how the incident was taken in a way not as negative as could be expected.
And you? Did you miss Pompliano too? If so, tell us why, and if not, you can tell us which character you would miss if it suddenly disappeared from their social networks.
