The latest Twitter news has everyone wondering – why is there a dog on Twitter? And what is the Twitter dog?
The face of Dogecoin, the Shiba Inu dog, has replaced the social media giant’s iconic blue bird logo!
While icon updates are usually not newsworthy, the addition of the Twitter dog logo has caused a frenzy in the crypto world, with dogecoin investors driving up its value in response.
Oh, and did we mention this is the same cryptocurrency Elon Musk is getting sued for? Keep reading to get all the tea. 👀☕️
The Twitter dog corresponds with the logo of Dogecoin, the joke cryptocurrency that Elon Musk famously endorsed.
Since its addition, the Twitter dog has caused a stir in the crypto world, with Dogecoin investors driving up its value in response.
We’re not sure if the Twitter dog is a permanent update or just a temporary one, but it has definitely caught the attention of many social media users.
Dogecoin investors have filed a class-action lawsuit against Elon Musk, Tesla, and SpaceX for allegedly operating an illegal racketeering enterprise to inflate the price of the cryptocurrency.
Musk has frequently tweeted about the dog-themed cryptocurrency, which often caused the price of the token to spike.

The plaintiff in this suit seems to use those tweets and Musk’s own references to himself as the “Dogefather” as proof.

The complaint calls for triple the damages of $86 billion, which is the amount the plaintiff alleges has been lost by Dogecoin investors since Musk first started tweeting about it.
Musk’s legal team recently filed a motion to dismiss the case, which was submitted just days before the doge logo appeared on Twitter’s homepage.
