The web security pioneer and McAfee founder, John McAfee recently tweeted saying that he must “go dark” since few government forces are after him. McAfee is known for his publicity stunts and unabashed honesty in his twitter commentary.
John McAfee, the eccentric antivirus pioneer known for publicity stunts and brushes with the law, announced he must “go dark” on Twitter, where he frequently comments on cryptocurrencies and has recently said government forces are out to get him. The Crypto-Twitter people group pays a great deal of regard to McAfee as a result of his conviction towards Bitcoin and cryptographic forms of money.
He is the individual who has upheld and talked about Bitcoin and other digital assets for quite a while. In 2018, McAfee used to discharge his ‘coin of the week’; for a couple of weeks, in the beginning, those coins saw gigantic development in cost because of his hypothesis and speculation.
McAfee was very active on Twitter, however, he has chosen to give up from the web-based life stage. Someone tweeted on his behalf from his account on Thursday, saying:
“Developing events have made it necessary for John McAfee to go dark, please be advised that this account will be operated by staff until further notice.” Messages flooded accounts of both McAfee and his wife but neither of them made any responses.
He had recently communicated about the misery and distress that the US Government had been causing him. He wrote:
“The IRS, using the NSA and the FBI, are harassing my former employees (Two were given houses), my business contacts (In Mexico no less), my banks, and even my auto mechanics. I will be publishing the full audio of these harassments soon. I invented the tech they use. I’m McAfee.”
No explanation has been provided either by the authorities or McAfee himself for the surveillance. Be that as it may, he out of the blue and rather shockingly went ‘dark’ without sending a ‘farewell tweet.’
