Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has riled up the Ethereum community once again.
The tech billionaire posted a screenshot of a new Twitter feature that includes a tweet that calls Ethereum a scam.
I used @getvicarious to create and sync a list of all accounts I’m following, set that list to be reverse chron, named it “Latest” and pinned it, and now I can quickly swipe between ranked (algorithm) and all tweets as they happen— jack⚡️ (@jack) August 12, 2021

While some suggested that the Ethereum-bashing tweet might have appeared on Dorsey’s feed coincidently, the 44-year-old entrepreneur clarified that there were no coincidences.
The Bitcoin community was obviously ecstatic after Dorsey took a jab at the rival cryptocurrency.

This is not the first time that the Twitter boss excels at trolling Ethereum holders. As reported by U.Today, Dorsey recently posted the #Eth hashtag on the cusp of the Tokyo Olympics to support Ethiopia, which did manage to win a gold medal in the men's 10,000 meters event.
Prior to that, Dorsey, a staunch Bitcoin proponent, would reject the idea of investing in Ethereum (or any other altcoin).
Ethereum (Satoshi Vision)?
The tweet that sparked yet another tiff between Dorsey and Ethereans addresses a recent comment made by Justin Drake, researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, on popular blockchain podcast Unchained.
Drake made a flippant comment about Ethereum being the “accomplishment of Satoshi’s vision”:
Ethereum is the accomplishment of Satoshi’s vision… Ethereum is Bitcoin, in that sense.
