While Elon Musk’s version of Twitter is all about free speech, it clearly does not tolerate FUD. Aave founder Stani Kulechov emerged as a prime example to those who try to spread fake news.

The crypto community was seen celebrating Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter. While some urged Musk to add more crypto assets to the tipping option, a few others wanted Dogecoin in the Twitter logo. With so many bizarre requests at bay, news about Aave’s Kulechov joining Twitter as the interim CEO began surfacing.

An array of them went on to believe this and considered it Musk’s move in integrating more crypto into Twitter. The Aave founder himself shared a tweet saying that he would be joining Twitter as the interim CEO. He even went on to pin the tweet.

Carrying the joke forward, Kukechov extended his gratitude to Musk and even shared his vision for the next couple of months. He tweeted,

“Thank you @elonmusk for the opportunity to work at Twitter. My first agenda is the roadmap for 90 days:

-Ship edit button by next week

-Open-source the Twitter algorithms

-Add support for Ethereum & ENS

-Integrate with @LensProtocol”

Following this tweet, the Aave founder’s account was suspended.

Was Kulechov trying to pump Aave’s price?

Several members of the cryptocurrency community rallied to Kulechov’s defense, claiming that Twitter had been unfair to him. Musk’s Twitter is all about free expression, but why was this taken so seriously, the community questioned.

A few others, however, speculated that the fiasco was a bad stunt to pump his portfolio. AAVE, during press time, was trading for $172.55 with a 4.17 percent surge over the last 24-hours.

Ethereum Name Service [ENS], however, was at the top of its game. The altcoin was trading for $18.87 with a whopping 25 percent daily increase.
