There have been different reports regarding how some social networks tend to block and filter the content of some accounts due to different opinions related to specific topics. One of the accounts that seem to have been affected by these policies is the Twitter handle @Bitcoin, which is a Bitcoin Cash supporter.

Is Twitter Restricting Bitcoin Cash Accounts?

In a recent tweet released by @Bitcoin, he says that his tweets performed much better before than after being restricted by Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter. He also shows an image comparing two of his tweets. In one of them, he receives 711 RT and 877 likes. In the other, he received only 54 RT and 141 likes.

@Bitcoin has also shared a video in which it is possible to see an investigation regarding former Twitter employees explaining how the company bans users and accounts.

At the same time, he showed that Bitcoin Core (making reference to Bitcoin BTC) is currently appearing in the first position when searching for Bitcoin on Twitter. Meanwhile, @Bitcoin appears in the last position.

@Bitcoin explains that this is a decision that was taken by Jack Dorsey in order to protect the projects in which he has invested, including Blockstream and Bitcoin Core. Jack Dorsey has several times shown its support Blockstream and the Bitcoin project as a whole.

Indeed, a few weeks ago, Dorsey decided to back the Lightning Network (LN), the ultimate scaling solution for Bitcoin and that has divided the space into Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Bitcoin Cash supporters are in favour of scaling the network with on-chain upgrades rather than with a layer-2 implementation such as the LN.

At the same time, we wrote a few days ago about Square Crypto, a new branch of Square that will be promoting Bitcoin and improving the network. Jack Dorsey is the CEO of Square as well.

Some users were commenting about this issue that seems to be affecting @Bitcoin. However, not all of them believed that Dorsey is trying to reduce Bitcoin Cash exposure on his social network. Some other individuals were saying that his handle comes up first when they searched for “Bitcoin” on Twitter.

Bitcoin Cash is currently the 6th digital asset in the market with a market capitalization of $2.92 billion. Each BCH coin can be purchased for $165. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is the largest digital asset in the market with a valuation of $70.70 billion and a price per coin og $4016.
