However, Twitter’s official blue birdie is back again, and users hope that it will stay this time. Musk surprised everyone by putting the Dogecoin logo for around three days because everyone expected the Doge logo to be there for a few hours.
Why did Twitter Logo change to doge?
The reasons behind changing the original logo of Twitter are unknown. However, it has been assumed that Elon Musk was trying to divert everyone’s attention from the dogecoin investor’s lawsuit that was filed against him. Though there are so many assumptions related to Twitter’s logo. However, Twitter users are happy because of the blue birdie, which is back as the logo.
What did Elon Musk say about replacing blue birdie with Dogecoin?
True to his typical form, Musk made a humorous remark by posting an old screenshot on his verified Twitter account.
