I own Week In Ethereum. Editorial control has always been 100% me.  If you’re unhappy with editorial decisions or anything that I have written in this issue, feel free to tweet at me. [Although I can’t answer right now to due to censorship, see below.]

Capricious Twitter censorship

One of my best friends launched Stoop, an Android/iOS newsletter reader. It uses a dedicated email and clean design experience to keep your information diet healthy. If you subscribe to newsletters, you will like it.

For reasons unknown, Twitter has locked my @evan_van_ness account. After Mailchimp arbitrarily banned me earlier this year, it’s sad to see web2.0 platforms making the case for their own demise. Web3 can’t come fast enough.

I’m sure that I missed things for this newsletter due to Twitter’s banhammer. Sorry!

If you’re wondering “why didn’t my post make it into Week in Ethereum?”
