Just yesterday JK Rowling set CT (crypto twitter) on fire with this tweet which is sure to go down in the history of Twitter Gold.


In a typical Twitter fashion, the author received an avalanche of replies ranging from funny, witty, informative and silly, to .. confusing, rude and plain wrong.


Everyone who is someone in crypto rushed to her resque… alas to no effect. From what we see today, the cryptocurrency remains a mystery, despite the best efforts of our peers..



It’s not surprising that one would feel lost amidst all the noise on twitter, just look at these…







ok, these were just noise really, let’s see the more helpful ones:


jk-rowling-23jk-rowling-11 jk-rowling-10

…and as if that wasn’t enough, there was even more white noise coming from those who don’t understand it either…


and where would we be without the trolls…




Phew, at least we got there in the end… or did we?

Nevermind, as Pierre Rochard summed it quite well, at least we gained some free publicity that opened the door to the mainstream interest a little bit more.

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
