Get ready for a surprising twist in the tech world: Twitter, the social media giant, replaced its iconic blue bird logo with the Dogecoin cryptocurrency symbol just days after April Fools’ Day. Elon Musk, known for his unpredictability, left Twitter users puzzled as they logged in to find the Dogecoin logo unexpectedly adorning their accounts. The logo switch came with no prior explanation, but Musk added to the intrigue by sharing a meme about the change on his own Twitter account.
Speculation and theories have been swirling ever since. Some Twitter users suspected a delayed April Fools’ prank, while others recalled Musk’s previous mention of buying Twitter and changing its logo to the popular Doge meme. However, there’s a twist in the tale. Amid this logo frenzy, news of a $258 billion lawsuit against Musk emerged. He stands accused of manipulating the price of Dogecoin and letting it crash intentionally. While critics slammed Musk for the logo maneuver, it seems to have had an unexpected side effect: boosting the Dogecoin cryptocurrency’s market value by a staggering $4 billion.
The Dogecoin cryptocurrency, originally conceived as a joke by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer in 2013, has grown to become the eighth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap. While the logo change on Twitter was temporary, the iconic blue bird has now returned to its rightful place, leaving the Twitterverse buzzing with curiosity and speculation.
