Twitter has changed its iconic blue bird logo to the image of a dog featured in viral memes, which is the logo of the popular cryptocurrency Dogecoin. Users noticed the change on Monday, April 3, and it appears to be a late April Fool’s Day gag from the company’s billionaire owner, Elon Musk. Musk tweeted a meme noting the change in typical fashion. The change in Twitter’s logo caused Dogecoin’s value to jump from US $0.079 to US $0.094, the highest value the currency has been since November last year.
The change to Twitter’s logo comes just three days after Musk petitioned a US federal court to drop a $258bn racketeering lawsuit levied against him by Dogecoin investors. Plaintiffs allege that the controversial Twitter and Tesla exec essentially operated a pyramid scheme supporting the cryptocurrency. The change in Twitter’s logo to the Dogecoin meme icon replacing the bluebird in user interfaces Monday is amid the ongoing lawsuit.
The change in Twitter’s logo was not something that people saw coming. However, it happened because of a conversation that Elon Musk had with the WSB Chairman on March 26. In it, the user urged Musk to buy Twitter and change the logo to Dogecoin. It looks like Musk loved the idea so much that he decided to make it a reality.
The change in Twitter’s logo has caused confusion among several users. However, it has also caused Dogecoin’s value to spike more than 26% to about $0.1. The change in Twitter’s logo to the Dogecoin meme icon is a reflection of the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies and their influence on social media.
