Users Want Vitalik Buterin to Return to Twitter (X)

In a post responding to a call for Vitalik to return to using X (formerly Twitter), this post immediately received a response from Elon Musk.

The debate over the ideal social media platform for the cryptocurrency community has sparked when the “Autism Capital” account called for Ethereum’s “birth giver” Vitalik Buterin to return to Twitter.

This post immediately drew a response from Elon Musk – the new owner of Twitter. He intervened with a curious question: “Why did he leave Twitter?

This story reverses back to September last year, when Vitalik lost control of his Twitter account due to a notorious SIM Swap incident. The Ethereum founder publicly criticized Twitter for this serious security issue and decided to switch to using the Farcaster platform – a new emerging SocialFi project based on blockchain technology and Ethereum wallet.

Farcaster Vitalik

Since then, Buterin has been actively promoting Farcaster, believing it to be the future of decentralized and secure social media. His statement has attracted many enthusiasts in the cryptocurrency community, making the emerging platform a hot topic.

Vitalik’s activity on Twitter (X)

Vitalik’s activity on Twitter (X) has also become increasingly sparse, lately focusing mainly on posting blog articles such as promoting layer-2 rollup solutions or applying AI to the audit process, etc. Not long ago, he still participated in responses on Twitter (X) when asked about Ethereum.

However, the harsh reality is that despite having nearly 180 thousand followers on Farcaster, this number is still only about 1/30 of Vitalik’s massive fan base on Twitter – where he has up to 5.2 million followers. Therefore, the call from “Autism Capital” is not entirely unreasonable – Buterin’s influence would be much greater if he returned to Twitter.

On the other hand, the SIM Swap issue causing account hack incidents has not been thoroughly resolved on Twitter. Many large accounts continue to face similar problems, from Vitalik Buterin, MicroStrategy, DWF Labs, CoinGecko, CEO of Algorand Foundation to Trezor, and even the SEC itself cannot escape this dangerous vortex.

Will Vitalik return to Twitter to leverage his massive fan base, or will he steadfastly support Farcaster as the new paradigm of decentralized social media?
