I own Week In Ethereum. Editorial control has always been 100% me.

Suspended from Twitter: for the second time in about 6 weeks, Twitter has suspended my account for no reason. Because of this, the newsletter missed lots of stuff and it took longer to compile. Twitter, you’re possibly the worst at machine learning.
Follow me on Twitter, because most of what is linked here gets tweeted first: @evan_van_ness
