FTX bankruptcy lawyer: debtors face ‘assault by Twitter’ stemming from Sam Bankman-Fried

James Bromley, one of the lawyers representing debtors in FTX’s bankruptcy case, has criticized social media activity against his law firm promulgated by posts from former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried. In a Jan. 20 hearing in the District of Delaware, lawyers spoke on motions dealing with potential conflicts of interest between Sullivan & Cromwell, the law firm tasked with the investigation of FTX’s bankruptcy, and the crypto exchange. Bromley, a partner at Sullivan & Cromwell, pushed back against the narrative that the law firm would be unable to act as a disinterested examiner given it had previously provided legal services to FTX and one of its former partners, Ryne Miller, went on to become the FTX US lead counsel. On Jan. 19, former FTX chief regulatory officer Daniel Friedberg filed...

Zedd Has an Idea for Elon Musk to Combat Hate Speech On Twitter

Zedd has a timely request for Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk: reduce the hate speech.  After Musk’s acquisition of Twitter last year, hate speech has risen exponentially on the platform, according to The Verge. The Center for Countering Digital Hate, the Anti-Defamation League and more found that slurs against Black Americans rose 302% after Musk’s takeover. Moreover, slurs against gay men reportedly increased by 158%. Musk, who has long championed electronic music, has been vocal about his goal to use Twitter as a vehicle to enable free speech without censorship. Another priority after his acquisition of Twitter was to reduce the amount of bots on the platform and prosecute scammers. But now Musk is facing another predicament with no room for error: hate speech. The...

HipHopWired Featured Video CLOSE Source: Edmund Eckstein / Getty / James Earl Jones If you opened up Twitter and saw James Earl Jones trending, you can breathe a sigh of relief. It’s the iconic actor’s 92nd birthday. Since Elon Musk purchased Twitter, trending topics no longer share descriptions of why certain things are trending anymore, so it can cause quite a scare when we see specific celebrities in the trending topic section. But everything is okay. James Earl Jones is fine. Today is his 92nd evolution around the sun, and we could not think of a better time to celebrate him. Born in Arkabutla Mississippi in 1931, Jones is best known for his recognizable voice that strikes fear into the hearts of the Rebel Alliance and Jedi Knights in the Star Wars films as Darth Vader. His voice also ...

Scaramucci to invest in crypto firm founded by former FTX US boss

SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci is investing in a crypto company founded by the former president of FTX US.

It is also understood that Harrison has been seeking a fundraising target as high as $10 million for a $100 million valuation. In a Jan. 14 tweet responding to Harrison’s lengthy thread on Sam Bankman-Fried and his ...

Elon Musk’s Twitter Will Relax Ban On Political Ads

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: NurPhoto / Getty / Twitter Elon Musk continues to make Twitter unbearable and annoying to use. Twitter will begin relaxing its ban on political ads, a policy it has upheld for a long time, the company announced Tuesday, Jan. 3. “We believe that cause-based advertising can facilitate public conversation around important topics,” the company tweeted. “Moving forward, we will align our advertising policy with that of TV and other media outlets.” Related Stories What that now means is that lobby groups and elected officials will once again be able to flood your feeds with political ads. Twitter banned the practice in 2019, before Musk, unfortunately, took over the country. The 2019 policy insists candidates earn political influence and do not buy it, gaining ...

HipHopWired Featured Video CLOSE Source: JUSTIN TALLIS / Getty/ Greta Thunberg Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg put on a masterclass on how to check a troll, and all she needed was one tweet to make it happen.

Community slams NYT for its latest ‘sympathy piece’ on FTX’s Bankman-Fried

The online community including some cryptocurrency figures has condemned the latest so-called “sympathy” article from The New York Times written about FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried. In the Dec. 26 article published titled “In the Bahamas, a Lingering Sympathy for Sam Bankman-Fried,” New York Times journalist Rob Copeland quotes local Bahamians who appeared to have mostly positive things to say about the cryptocurrency exchange founder. One resident opined he had a “good heart,” with another local saying they “feel bad for him.” A resident interviewed for the article even said it “doesn’t make any sense” that Bankman-Fried’s alleged crimes landed him in prison. The article suggests that the glowing reviews of Bankman-Fried by locals stem from his millions of dollars i...
