Elon Musk blocked by Twitter after he Mentions Bitcoin in a Tweet
Billionaire Elon Musk’s Twitter account which has over 23 million followers was subjected to a temporary ban after he made a tweet advising people to buy Bitcoin. The tweet was in reply to a user who was asking about two-factor authentication on an earlier tweet of his.
Twitter is the only of the “big three” Internet Giants that refuses to reverse its ban on cryptocurrency ads. Musk’s account was temporarily blocked with Twitter thinking it was hacked.
Elon Musk in a later tweet confirmed the ban saying “Twitter thought I got hacked & locked my account.”
Twitter thought I got hacked & locked my account haha

The matter has been resolved now with no clarification on the reason or the duration for which his account was disabled.
Grimes also tweeted a few hours back saying ” I’d prefer the free Ethereum you promised.”

Elon Musk is a controversial figure but a highly respected one. He has managed to do the impossible against all odds and I guess, all of us would like to know his thoughts on the crypto-verse.
