While there have been many-a-tweet about Elon Musk changing the colour of heart emojis on Twitter, this time Mr Musk has let his imagination run wild, with the Twitter logo itself being replaced with the popular doge meme, featuring a Shiba Inu.
This move has left many wondering about his motivation behind changing the main logo, which is currently only visible on the web version of Twitter.
Some are calling it a late April Fool’s Day prank, as the billionaire has shown the world his unique brand of humor many times.
Still others are saying Musk appears to have taken a conversation with a user, before Musk bought Twitter, in which he asked if there was a need for a new platform, and the user suggested that he should take over Twitter and change the logo to that of a Doge meme, seriously.
According to a Reuters report, Musk is currently facing a $258 billion lawsuit filed by investors, who accuse him of running a pyramid scheme to support the Dogecoin cryptocurrency, created in 2013 by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer as nothing more than a satirical take on the crytpo market.
The investors claim that Musk intentionally drove up Dogecoin’s price by over 36,000% in two years and then allowed it to crash.
With the adoption of the Doge meme as the Twitter logo, Musk has managed to drive the prices of Dogecoin up again, with a Bloomberg report indicating that the value of the cryptocurrency increased by as much as 30%.
