Elon Musk's Tweets Explain Why He Changed Twitter Blue Bird Logo...


Elon Musk replaced Twitter's iconic blue bird logo with a cryptocurrency meme on Tuesday. The "Doge" meme appears in the top left corner of the home page of the web version of Twitter's feed. This is the latest change since Musk bought the microblogging platform for $44 billion last November. He previously tweeted that starting in April, Twitter will only recommend content from paid accounts in its For You feed. This feed is displayed on the first page that users see when they open the app.
One of his tweets shows the face of a "Dodge" meme driving a car while a police officer checks a driver's license with an "old" blue bird logo.

The meme of the "dog" logo as a logo was flooded with comments on Twitter.

One user asked: "Elon Musk changed the Twitter logo to Doge. Is Twitter Tuesday fun?" Another said: "On Twitter, people are constantly getting attention for bullshit. Who cares if it's a bird or a dog."

Musk is a backer of Dogecoin, a digital currency created as a joke in 2013. He noted that Tesla accepts Dogecoin as payment for its goods and reiterated that SpaceX will soon do the same.

According to Bloomberg, Dogecoin surged nearly 30% after an image of Dogecoin suddenly appeared on the site's user interface.

As more users questioned why the logo had changed, Musk sent out two tweets that humorously illustrated his move.

Doge tells the cop "that's an old photo".

Then, in another tweet, Mr Musk shared a screenshot of an old conversation with a user who asked him to "buy Twitter and change the bird logo to a doge". He said in the tweet it's done "as promised".

meanwhile, highlighted a "relevant" piece of news that users are pointing to - a Reuters reports that said Mr Musk is facing a $258 billion lawsuit alleging he ran a pyramid scheme to support dogecoin. The Twitter CEO's legal team asked the court to dismiss the dogecoin suit a few days before the meme appeared on Twitter's site.
