We’re not really in the business of defending Richard Branson’s reputation, but here goes…It’s spam and the associated Branson quotes are fake. (That’s a screenshot above, btw, not the actual tweet. For that you’d need to click here.)The tweet has garnered a ton of responses from real people, hurling abuse at the bearded one, calling him out for a Virgin company suing the NHS, etc, and/or simply calling him a “tosser.”But the quotes attributed to Branson on what looks like a Bitcoin-related scam, which the tweet links to, are made up.You may be thinking: ‘Fools and their money..’ Except this is a promoted tweet.The scammers have paid Twitter to use the platform to try and defraud other users, while defiling the name of a very successful British entrepreneur.Sell Twitter.
