Some hours ago, Herald Sheets hinted the suspension of the well-known Bitcoin influencer, Anthony Pompliano from Twitter purportedly for spamming.
This incident created confusion and commotion within the cryptocurrency community as to what could have caused the suspension of such an important Bitcoin and cryptocurrency diehard supporter from Crypto Twitter.
Many crypto big guns such as Thomas Lee, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) and others alike trooped out of their comfort zones to rally for his support and to challenge Twitter to reinstate his account without delay.
Anthony Pompliano’s Twitter Account Restored
It has come to our notice that Anthony Pompliano’s Twitter Account has been restored without delay, after the solidarity of cryptocurrency community members on the Micro-Blogging social platform.
After the reinstatement of his account, the Bitcoin influencer Pomp had many questions to answer as to what particularly initiated his sudden suspension.
In one of his responses, Pompliano said political bots likely reported his account in numbers after he asked Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg if he’s interested in Bitcoin, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrencies.
He averred that the suspension by Twitter was not direct censorship but automated suspension by Twitter bot after a likely mass-reporting by those who disliked his campaign for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
Anthony Pompliano shared this, “I asked Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg if he wanted to learn about Bitcoin. Told him to sign up for newsletter if so. My guess is political bots mass reported me. Not really censorship, just abuse of Twitter auto-suspension feature when mass reporting by bots.”

In another tweet, Pomp wondered about the manipulation of social platforms, coupled with the silencing of people suddenly using software.
He tweeted this, “At the end of the day, not a big deal. Just scary to think about the manipulation of these platforms and the potential silencing of people being decided by software. I’m a big Twitter fan (obviously) and don’t think this is a problem only they deal with. Weird world we live in.”
