I compose threads like these several times a week. Following @mwill_crypto will allow you to read them hot off the press. If you loathe a clogged feed then, by all means, give me the flick and follow @NuggetsNewsAU instead. They actually do interviews and what not. Whereas I…well I just tweet about them!
