Twitter has permanently banned the account of Stani Kulechov, the founder and CEO of leading DeFi platform Aave.
The reason was the following tweet by the executive: "BREAKING: Joining Twitter as interim CEO."
Kulechov presented his first agenda as a roadmap for 90 days, which included shipping edit button, make Twitter algorithms open source, adding Ethereum support and integration with Lens Protocol. However, Twitter didn't appreciate the joke.
According to Twitter rules, when an account is suspended permanently, the user won't be allowed to create new accounts.
However, there is an option to appeal suspensions if users believe Twitter has made an error. Wether Kulechov will appeal or no is uncertain.
On April 26, it was announced that Twitter accepted Tesla CEO Elon Musk's offer to buy the social media company for $44 billion. The deal is expected to close sometime this year after stockholder and regulatory approvals. Until then, current CEO Parag Agrawal will coninue to be the CEO of the company.
