According to a tweet by Peter McCormack posted by Bitcoin (BTC) on March 10, Twitter recently blocked at least six cryptocurrency-related accounts.
The accounts listed include some of the most famous cryptographic figures on Twitter with over 300,000 followers, such as Bitcoin network analyst Willie Wu and BTC form builder Stream PlanB, as well as cryptocurrency spokesman TheCryptoDog. Other industry accounts such as MMCrypto, TheMoon, Korous AK and WSBChairman, which claim that the account is not affiliated with the r / WallStreetBets Reddit community, have also been suspended.

At the time of posting, five of the listed accounts are still unavailable, while the Willy Woo and PlanB accounts appear to have been restored. At the time of writing, it appears that the PlanB account has been completely restored, and Willie Wu has around 600 subscribers.
Despite PlanB’s brief comment, Twitter has not yet removed any of the influential cryptocurrency imitators. Twitter user Ankeborgare pointed out that some of the fake PlanB accounts, such as 100TrillionUSDT and 100TrillionUSDD, were not blocked on Twitter in the last blockchain.
On March 8, Twitter support reported that the platform is experiencing a “peak” of incorrect account blocking.
