Vitalik abused again on Twitter following Time Magazine Interview   

The founder of the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency, Vitalik  Buterin, has once again become a target for social abuse on Twitter — this time after being featured on the front cover of TIME magazine

The Ethereum co-founder gave quite an impressive interview filled with insights as to how the next phase of crypto currency would take shape. He also talked about his fears for the crypto industry and how major setbacks in the space could be prevented. However, following the reveal of his Time Magazine front page on Twitter, many quote tweets about the article made snarky comments about the programmer’s appearance instead. 

Afterwards, Buterin shared screenshots of some of the most brutal tweets — describing them as “truly amazing.” Albeit while it might seem noble of him to laugh off the criticism and abuse, it really does underscore how narcissistic and toxic the social network can be.

 “I have never seen a face more deserving of being shoved in a locker in my entire life,” one Tweep wrote.

“This guy looks like the clone Tom Brady keeps locked in the basement to periodically feed on to stay youthful, ” another malicious user wrote.

One of these violators went ahead to dehumanize the programmer when he tweeted:

“This is if Tom Brady was on dog food”

Following the reactions to his Time Magazine interview, Vitalik shared screenshots of these tweets with the caption: 

 “The quote tweets on the new time article about me are truly amazing. These are barely even cherry picked pretty much one piece of awesome after another. Highly recommend scrolling.”
