“My tweets were simple. There were questions about a large ($580m) FTT deposit to Binance, and we were transparent about the fact that we are closing our FTT position,” Zhao said

In the same Tweet thread, Zhao quoted a conspiracy theory that was getting traction in the crypto Community on behalf of the rumoured downfall of FTX. 

Further Zhao said that fake theories are taking the form of a fight between two leading crypto companies, which is not the truth. And Binance believes in building, not fighting.
