As the Bitcoin bull run continues unabated, social media is rife with commentary, news and memes.

Like plucky investors looking to get in on the action, some Twitter users are using the #Bitcoin hashtag to boost their following and interaction.

Expect the Twitter trolls to keep on troll-lol-ing for the foreseeable future.
