There are a lot of news every day regarding the cryptocurrency regulations, but Twitter blocking the accounts of major cryptocurrecnies is something new. Twitter was always blocking fake accounts, or the ones impersonating famous figures and those which were trying to steal money from other users by posting fake challenges and airdrops. But on April 8, Twitter has suspended @Bitcoin account, which was supposedly violating Twitter Rules.

Ther opinions of the community towards the news of @Bitcoin account suspension were divided, as some of the users thought that it is good news as the account was for years and years "basically a price bot". Others were unsatisfied stating that Twitter banned @Bitcoin account, but did not bother to suspend thousands of other fraudulent and fake accounts, which certainly violate the Twitter Rules.
Currently the @Bitcoin account name is taken by a new user with around 1600 followers, supposedly not related to cryptocurrency, and the account is private, so there is no possibility to view the tweets.
