Although BCH is a fork of Bitcoin, the crypto community often see the clashes between Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Litecoin CEO, Charlie Lee recently mentioned Roger Ver (the founder of Bitcoin.com), and mocked with the romantic relationship and break up between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
Who Handles @Bitcoin Twitter Account?
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was created as a hard fork of Bitcoin in 2017 and Roger Ver, who is also known as the Bitcoin Jesus and manages “Bitcoin.com” a crypto news media publication often seen promoting BCH and its use-cases. However, very recently, a widespread Twitter handle of Bitcoin (@Bitcoin) which is recognized for its ardent support of BCH, now turned its way as it seems to be supporting BTC instead.
Overnight, Crypto Twitter observes a various modification in the Twitter feed of @Bitcoin account. The old Bitcoin comprised various updates about bitcoin Cash including the bio, whereas the new Twitter feed of Bitcoin is more about only Bitcoin, even the bio and the website link is modified from bitcoin.com/bitcoin.pdf to Bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf.
Why is @Bitcoin Supporting BTC and Deleted Pro-BCH Tweets?
While nobody knows what exactly had happened, Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin trolls it saying,
“I think the owner of @Bitcoin must have had a romantic relationship with Roger Ver and recently broke up with Roger.”
He suspects this could be the reason why @bitcoin stopped supporting BCH.
I have no proof of this, but I think the owner of @bitcoin must have had a romantic relationship with Roger Ver and recently broke up with Roger. That's the only thing that can explain why @bitcoin stopped supporting BCH.

There’s no firm proof on who handles or manages this controversial @Bitcoin Twitter account. However, during April 2018, Roger ver made a strong statement stating that “he had never owned the Bitcoin account.”
His tweet of 2018 declaring his stance about the owner of @Bitcoin seems he knows the real person who manages this account, community suspect Jack Dorsey (Founder of Twitter) as the owner of Bitcoin.
Echoing a similar concern, Alistaire Milne relates Roger with Jack citing Jack’s investment in Lightning Labs and said;
Roger Ver attacks @jack, saying his support for Lightning can only be due to a relationship with @starkness
… @jack fires back, saying if Roger wants to keep @bitcoin open, he can't use it for Bcash propaganda?
It is just a theory, I have no evidence … 😏

Moreover, a Twitter account, Bitcoin AI #2357 previously stated;
“So, he either must know what happened with the account or there was a fallout between them. Yet he doesn’t reveal any information and lets his employees run rampant on r/BTC with conspiracy theories instead.”
Having said that, nothing seems specific, but Crypto Twitter is just fun with tweets like Charlie Lee, who is poking fun at the matter. Moreover, @Bitcoin Twitter handles began sharing a short video clip of unfollowing the crypto champions including Roger Ver.

Besides, on Reddit, the community asked Roger what BCH community should do to save @Bitcoin, Ver abruptly replied: “Don’t know.”
