Fox Business producer Eleanor Terrett has found herself becoming a target for social media impersonators as she gains recognition in the crypto community. Terrett has had to tweet reminders to her followers that she does not have a private profile and will never reach out to them. She also warns that she does not have any stock or crypto trading tips to offer. Unfortunately, there are impersonators out there scamming people in her name, with some even having thousands of followers. Terrett is curious as to how these impostors manage to gain such a following by pretending to be her.
Terrett, who works as a journalist and producer for Charlie Gasparino at Fox Business, has garnered over 90,000 followers through her commentary on the Ripple v. SEC lawsuit. Her growing fanbase has led to people reaching out to her for paid sponsorships, similar to famous influencers. However, at the moment, she is not interested in promoting anything, as she has an employer and it is not the right time for her. But she does acknowledge that she receives numerous requests to “partner up.”
Outside of her work at Fox Business, Terrett volunteers at an animal shelter on weekends because of her love for animals. She considers it a “definite career highlight” to have received a follow and shoutout from Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, the CEO of Binance. She also hopes to receive a follow from Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong.
Terrett initially had only a few Twitter followers before delving into the world of crypto, but her ongoing updates on the SEC v. Ripple case propelled her into the spotlight of the crypto industry. She credits her follower growth to crypto and finds it mind-blowing to have accumulated over 90,000 followers. Her interest in the space began when pro-XRP lawyer John Deaton tagged Charlie Gasparino in a tweet about the Ripple case.
Terrett’s focus on Twitter is mainly on the legal and regulatory aspects of crypto rather than price analysis. She keeps a watchful eye on any regulatory developments related to crypto, particularly those coming out of Washington, such as updates from the SEC, CFTC, and Congress.
She enjoys following prominent figures in the U.S. government and crypto exchange CEOs on Twitter to stay updated on any news or developments they may share. While she refrains from making price predictions, she occasionally provides hints of excitement about certain crypto assets.
After closely analyzing various crypto-related court filings, Terrett predicts that the SEC will face more losses in its crypto enforcement cases, which she believes will eventually lead to a more transparent industry. She cites the recent Uniswap class action lawsuit being thrown out as a positive step forward, highlighting the importance of not blaming software for losses, as it is a fundamental aspect of decentralized finance (DeFi).
Overall, Terrett’s presence in the crypto community continues to grow, and she remains dedicated to providing reliable and trustworthy information to her followers, primarily focusing on the legal and regulatory aspects of the industry.
