As experienced angel investors and pseudo-celebrities (thanks to the infamous Facebook lawsuit), the Winklevoss twins slide seamlessly into the crypto space. As long as you’re looking for news about all things Winklevoss, these are the influencers for you.
Famous for suing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, the Winklevoss twins have been involved with cutting edge tech since their college years. Their platform, ConnectU, launched in 2004 and was the at the center of the infamous Mark Zuckerberg lawsuit. Since, 2012, however, more and more of their focus has been on bitcoin and cryptocurrency. They’ve created several Bitcoin related sites, including Winkdex and the popular cryptocurrency exchange Gemini. They’ve also, reportedly purchased over $100,000 bitcoins, making them “Bitcoin Billionaires.”
While each brother has his own account, their tweets are frequently quite similar. Coupling name recognition (thanks in part to the popular movie The Social Network) with one of the most trusted cryptocurrency exchanges, the Winklevoss twins are frequently interviewed about the future of Bitcoin, with particular emphasis on the need for regulation.
Neither Winklevoss is consistently active on Twitter, with stretches of inactivity interrupted with bursts of hyperactivity. Both Cameron and Tyler make announcements about their various bitcoin projects on their website’s blog.
They each tweet fairly regularly about Bitcoin related news, but they most frequently tweet about their own speaking engagements, their own interviews and their own exchange (Gemini).
