Extremely honored to have spent time today with someone who has been a massive inspiration to me, Jane Goodall. I’ve met a lot of incredible people on this wild journey, but none I’ve been more excited about than Jane. 🧵 pic.twitter.com/uivC2HzH1U— GordonGoner.eth (Wylie Aronow) (@GordonGoner) September 23, 2022

Care about growth? You need to learn how to write compelling threads
Here's how to write viral Twitter Threads fast:
You may remember Franklin as the collector who “scammed himself” out of 100 ETH. He’s also the 6th largest BAYC holder and an expert in all things Yuga (including staking) and trading more generally.
Oh no, I lost 100 ETH. I was celebrating my joke of a domain sale, sharing the spoils, but in a dream of greed, forgot to cancel my own bid of 100 ETH to buy it back. This will be the joke and bag fumble of the century. I deserve all of the jokes and criticism.— Franklin (@franklinisbored) July 20, 2022
Founder of ZenAcademy and The 333 Club (a club for builders), Zeneca is also behind the influential 30daysofNFT, a platform for onboarding new people to Web3. His mix of education, commentary and humour has earned him over 312k followers.
I'm excited to announce our newest education based initiative: https://t.co/17M23f4lZf— Zeneca (🔮,🔥) (@Zeneca_33) October 17, 2022
We all know how difficult it is to onboard new people into this space. The learning curve is steep and full of risks and dangers. pic.twitter.com/BGzHZtoRUj
