Solana changes Twitter handle to ‘Solano’ after Jack Dorsey misspelling

Layer-1 blockchain Solana has renamed its Twitter account after former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey misspelled the cryptocurrency’s name in a thread on the platform.

On Friday, Dorsey’s TBD announced its intention of producing a Web5, with the aim to create “a new class of decentralized apps and protocols”.

While voicing the benefits of a Web5 world on Twitter, when calling out Web3’s dependence on venture capital funding and blockchains such as Ethereum and Solana, Dorsey misspelled Solana as “Solano”.

It’s no secret that Dorsey isn’t the biggest fan of blockchain organizations. In April, he tweeted: “If you’re building on Ethereum you have at least one, if not many, single points of failure and therefore not interesting to me.”

It is uncertain if the misspelling was an intentional move from Dorsey or an honest mistake, but either way, the team at Solana have a sense of humour and has since changed the company’s Twitter display name to ‘Solano’.

Across the board, crypto fans been running with the joke, tweeting responses based on Dorsey’s could-be accident. “Troll like no one is watching… I’m starting a line of Web6 Homesense signs. Live, Laugh, Solano,” and “We love Solano ⁦@solana⁩ web6 lfg”, Twitter users said.

No one knows if Solana will keep its Twitter alteration; the name remains correct on its company website.
