Accordingly, on April 4, Twitter users suddenly discovered that the logo of this social network had been changed into a Shiba Inu dog logo – very similar to the Dogecoin (DOGE) logo.
Elon Musk, the billionaire who spent $43 billion to buy Twitter at the end of 2022, said that this is just an act of fulfilling a commitment he made last year.
Musk did not add that this would be the starting point for Twitter to accept DOGE as a payment method, something the Tesla CEO did with his electric car company and has been rumored countless times since Twitter was acquired by this billionaire.
Many people even joked that maybe this was an “April Fool’s” prank, but because of the lack of staff after many layoffs and the harsh work culture under Musk, Twitter was unable to throw this joke on time.
Even so, that was enough for the DOGE price to jump 37% from $0.077 to $0.10 at dawn on April 4, before correcting to 0.092 at press time.
