The Twitter account for RadioShack was not hacked, They are in real selling crypto
“In case you discover a squirter marry her.”
This is the tweet that is going viral right now, and people are responding with amazement and confusion, wondering, “What the hell is going on?”
This was neither a mistaken tweet from a leader or a hacked account belonging to a legitimate business.
The “squirter” tweet from RadioShack was a huge hit on Wednesday.
Indeed, RadioShack tweeted about it.
The question is why RadioShack would tweet about it. It is simple: RadioShack has transitioned into the Bitcoin sector.
All well, then. RadioShack has made a dramatic shift to the blockchain by releasing its own cryptocurrency exchange called Radio Shack Swap. The company has its own cryptocurrency, $RADIO, which is now trading at a discount of about a cent. (Its value has apparently been cut in half due to the crypto market crisis.)
If you go to the RadioShack website right now, you could find that the company still sells a few electronic accessories. Nonetheless, the RadioShack bitcoin platform is featured prominently on the front page.
The 100-year-old electronics company has also begun producing “edgy” content on Twitter in an effort to attract the libertarian-leaning crypto “degens” (crypto slang for “degenerates,” as some crypto proponents refer to themselves as). This is not the first time the account has gone viral due to the shock value of seeing your dad’s go-to outlet for old ham radio spare components slum it up on the internet with some tweet-then-delete edgelord humour, and the since-deleted “squirter” tweet may have been its greatest attention-grabbing success to date.
On June 16, the @RadioShack account tweeted, “who else excessive af rn.”
To finish off an appetising when you did not feel anything from the first half is always a bad idea. This chocolate bar is what got me out here fighting for my life,” it wrote on June 28.
When a customer uploaded a photo of their expired RadioShack “Battery Membership” card on Twitter, @RadioShack responded, “This man fucks.”
“congrats on the touchdown of your new large steel cock elon” the account said in response to Elon Musk on June 17.
Once your grandpa’s digital shop, RadioShack was acquired by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV) in 2020, and the company has since transformed into a bitcoin pumper. This followed a difficult period for the company, during which it went bankrupt and had to shut down several of its stores. Only 400 of RadioShack’s once-vast network of 7,300 stores were still operating when REV acquired the company.
Owned by the notorious “YouTube ad man” Tai Lopez, whose “get wealthy fast” scheme-promoting pre-roll video ads have plagued the video-sharing website for years. The video, titled “Right here in My Storage,” has Lopez showing off his Lamborghini and is arguably his most popular YouTube commercial. Over 71 million people have seen it thus far.
Lopez has previous experience in the crypto industry. When he debuted his own brand of NFTs earlier this year, opponents were quick to label them a hoax, saying that Lopez “siphons out the funds” whenever someone mints an NFT.
