Elon Musk recently declared that he had finally retired Twitter’s iconic bird emblem and replaced it with a meme that is widely used online.
Users of Twitter will now encounter a new loading screen when they visit the website that features Kabosu, the Shiba Inu who served as the model for the famed Doge meme.
Moreover, the same meme has been used as Twitter’s homepage display image. Many social media users are curious about what this shift might signify for the future of Twitter as it has generated a lot of buzz and questions.
Many tweeps initially thought Elon’s tweet came as an April fool but it appears that this was far more than just an April Fool’s joke that arrived two days late. The price of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin has increased by 10% as a result of the prank. That is still less expensive than it was in May 2021, though.
Interestingly, Musk is being sued for $258 million for racketeering because it was claimed that he ran a pyramid scheme to advertise Dogecoin.
