Okay, it's a Gawker link, but it's mainly an aggregation of links to other, primary sources: How much did Michigan's Governor know about Flint's poisoned water supply?

Leave it to Congress to get me to take the side of Martin Fucking Shkreli.

FIRST OF ALL, why shouldn't he plead the fifth? We all know you dragged him down to DC for no reason other than to try to style on him for Internet Points in an election year and pose and preen about what concerned public servants you are. To be mad he doesn't want to offer himself up for your poll numbers is a joke.

More importantly, you don't like how he priced darapram? Neither do I! If only there were some organization that could pass a law restricting how pharmaceutical companies can price life-saving drugs! Shkreli is a piece of shit but don't try to guilt-trip him for acting in accordance with your cowardice.

This can't be real.

I mean, those are real tweets that are still visible on the actual Shkreli twitter page. It's being picked up by real financial sites and general news circuits.

But how the fuck does an actual millionaire who has literally just had the kind of transaction he wanted this to be think that a shady bitcoin transaction is the way it would work?

Yeah, my money's on his Twitter account being stolen.

Though he could just be trolling.

Might not even be his real Twitter account in the first place? Or did it show up earlier during previous news stories?

Well, it says it's a verified account, and that it was opened in 2011. That'd be a hell of a long time for somebody to run a fake account without anybody noticing.
