The well-known coder and designer of the meme-inspired cryptocurrency not only turned his Twitter private but also removed an important number of his YouTube videos. These two social networks were Mr. Palmer’s main channels of communication.

Mr. Palmer did not explain or warn his followers, however, in Dogecoin’s official subreddit, one user clarified that the decision to “disappear” from Twitter was probably due to the recent number of negative comments he received as a result of his opinions on certain controversial topics:

On Twitter, he had a skeptic – analytic position about cryptocurrency and blockchain and it was always refreshing to many, myself included, to listen to his opinion and for that he had many followers and he managed to produce a lot of quality conversation. But more recently he focused more on other issues like identity politics for which he got a lot of negative replies as one would expect. That probably influenced in his decision to delete Twitter as well as the prevalent tribal mentality in many cryptocurrency communities.

Another user, however, explains that perhaps Palmer felt “saturated” by social networks pointing out that he has done this in previous occasions:

Pumpkin has nuked his social media platforms a few times over the years generally when the space gets too much, too close or too aggressive with him. He killed his reddit account months before his twitter, his facebook before that, he has killed his twitter account three times before. (A previous time sent the original Dogecoin tweet into the void)

He just wanted a break and time away from the whole space. He is well, he is good just taking a break from everything crypto.

Regarding Youtube, Palmer himself explained in his Twitter account (now private) that he took that decision to prevent incessant user comments demanding that he do something about the scammers impersonating him. He also commented that his public videos will be oriented to technology in general to avoid negative reviews.

“Because a few people have asked: yes, I’ve made all the crypto videos on my YouTube channel private. Thread as to why…

Every few days, I get contacted by someone saying I’m being impersonated on Telegram, WhatsApp or via email spoofing offering ‘promoted’ videos for money. In some cases, I sense hostility from these people towards me and they say ‘you should do something about it!’

It’s not my job or responsibility to spend time reporting fake accounts on instant messaging services that I don’t even use, and I don’t have the spare energy to deal with people asking me about this stuff on the regular. It’s made my hobby tedious, tiring and un-fun.

In addition to this, a large chunk of the comments on my videos were akin to ‘this guy talks funny and is dumb, this coin is actually amazing because I have bags of it myself so it must be great’. I turned off notifications, but it’s still not compelling feedback to receive.

So my YouTube channel from here on out is just going to be about general tech and I’ll post when I feel like it. It’s my hobby, after all. Also, scammers are less likely to impersonate me if my channel is just mechanical keyboard reviews. Thanks all for understanding.”
