Larva Labs (LL), the creators behind NFT project CryptoPunks, just deleted all of their tweets. What happened and why? It turns out the reason is pretty simple.
Larva Labs just deleted all of their tweets
Since Yuga Labs bought CryptoPunks and Meebits collections from Larva Labs, there’s not much need for LL to continue posting on his original Twitter account. Since then, most tweets have been moved to @cryptopunksnfts. While LL founders Matt and John continued to post as @larvalabs.
However, looking at the comments, Twitter users @Pauly0x thinks it is very important for Larva Labs to delete all tweets. However, that is a legitimate concern. After all, Larva Labs has said they will work on other Web3 projects after selling CryptoPunks and Meebits NFT IP to Yuga Labs. So there’s little point in trying to disappear from Twitter altogether.
Where can I find the original tweets?
However, if you want to retrace the original tweets, you can search for Twitter user @swissdegen. According to him, he has a full backup of all Larva Labs tweets as of 2017. Wow, what a true vintage collection this is!
Unfortunately, no one seems to really care whether or not Larva Labs deleted their tweets. According to Yuga Labs, the team will give NFT holders full commercial rights CryptoPunks and Meebits Collections. That news alone gave enough incentive for NFT holders to switch sides to Yuga Labs.
Nonetheless, Larva Labs has been in the NFT space for 4 years. The NFT giant has been through the ups and downs in the world of NFTs and created one of the largest OG NFT projects in CryptoPunks. Who knows, we might see some amazing work from the team behind Larva Labs again?
