About seven days ago, Elon Musk announced that Twitter would delete 1.5 billion Twitter names if the accounts were inactive for a long time. After the declaration, supporters of bitcoin were afraid. They thought that Hal Finney, a now-deceased computer scientist, would have his Twitter account shut down. Fran Finney, Hal Finney’s wife, appears to have taken over his social media accounts ever since, in the hopes that Musk won’t delete her husband’s account.
Fran saves Hal Finney’s twitters account
She controls Hal’s Twitter account. She says she turned it on to protect it from Elon Musk’s plan to delete inactive Twitter accounts.
Elon Musk previously stated that on December 9, Twitter would delete 1.5 billion inactive Twitter names. Following Musk’s comments, many bitcoin supporters became concerned that Finney’s account would be deleted. They pleaded with him to keep Finney’s account intact. In addition, strange signings have been occurring. One of the users by the name of “Onesignature” from the Bitcointalk forum signed a message connected to a block Finney had mined.
Martin Shkreli also shared a message
The “pharma bro” and former hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli also shared a signed message. It is with an address connected to Finney not long after that peculiar signing event. Hal received 10 bitcoins from Satoshi Nakamoto at the address that the message was linked to.
The message said: “This Transaction was made by Paul Leroux to Hal Finney on January 12, 2009 #bitcoin.
It is unknown if anyone has directly contacted Fran Finney regarding these strange address signings. It is unknown whether she is aware of the potential reasons why someone might possess Hal’s private keys. Greg Maxwell, a software developer, was informed by Shkreli that he intended to get in touch with the Finneys and inquire about the private keys. However, the contentious Shkreli remained mum on how he came by the message that referenced Paul Le Roux.
