The winds of change have blown through Twitter HQ, and the Doge has been banished from its perch as the platform’s logo. It seems that the cheeky Shiba Inu has finally run out of luck, and the iconic blue bird has swooped back in to reclaim its throne. This news will come as a relief to those of us who missed the bird’s familiar presence on our screens.
In case you missed it, Twitter had caused quite a stir earlier this week when it replaced its bird logo with the image of the famous DogeCoin dog. The move had caused a frenzy among users, with some speculating that it was an April Fool’s prank, while others thought it was a strategic move by Elon Musk, the platform’s owner.
Whatever the reason, the sudden change had sent shockwaves through the social media world, and the price of DogeCoin had skyrocketed as a result. But now, it seems that the Doge has had its day, and the bird is back in charge.
This news comes on the heels of Twitter’s announcement that it would be removing legacy verified blue checkmarks, which had caused quite a commotion among users. The company has also reportedly been giving out free checkmarks to select organizations, including the top 500 advertisers on the platform and the 10,000 organizations with the most followers. However, it’s worth noting that businesses and government accounts will need to pay $1,000 per month to keep their badges.
Elon Musk had his own take on all of this, as he often does. While Twitter users were scratching their heads over the Doge logo switch, the billionaire entrepreneur responded to a tweet with his trademark wit:
All in all, Twitter’s strategy behind all these changes remains a mystery. But one thing is for sure – the return of the blue bird to its rightful place as the platform’s logo is sure to be welcomed by Twitter users and crypto enthusiasts alike.
