Who’s Having a Bad Day on Twitter: @SBF_FTX

  • In an exchange Tuesday night, he told her that his progressive-themed philanthropy was “mostly a front” and his pro-regulatory comments were largely a “PR” move, adding, “Fuck regulators.”
  • On Wednesday, Bankman-Fried sullenly promoted the conversation on Twitter.
