Twitter-banned Ed Krassenstein stopped by the Chapo Trap House subreddit to give the world a bit of insight into what the life of the ousted internet warriors look like since he and his brother Brian were permanently suspended from the platform.
Krassenstein began by criticizing Twitter for booting him and Brian without providing any clear reason. Hes not wrong, the company wrote vaguely:“the Twitter Rules to apply to everyone. Operating multiple fake accounts and purchasing account interactions are strictly prohibited. Engaging in these behaviors will result in permanent suspension from the service.”
He went on to write that Twitter has every right to ban us and say that hes not angry that he and his brother were suspendedechoing statements he made to theDaily Dot in a phone conversation two weeks ago.
Krassenstein says that hes mad at the media for not asking more specific questions from Twitter and for simply running the platforms statement. He maintains that he and his brother never purchased interactions or ran bot networks.
Krassenstein wrote that: Twitter wasn’t our life, no matter how much people thought it was.
He says that they only made about $4,000 from their Twitter presence over the past four years and that theyve made that cash through providing legitimate services to the community. He claimed that its ironic that the media is accusing the duo of being grifters and took a shot at the press, writing the media hated us because they didn’t like the fact that we emerged out of nowhere to have a louder voice than they did.
Ed closed by saying that the brothers are just fine and that they bought a lot of bitcoin eight years ago.
The commenters were good sports about a Krassenbro BOOMing in their subreddit.
One wrote: Its great how we went from relentlessly making fun of you guys to this sub being the only place to welcome you. Another urged, read Marx bro.
Its hard to say what the Chapo boys think of the Krassentakover but they dont seem to be entirely pleased.
