Elon Musk changes the iconic Blue Bird logo on Twitter website to Doge meme

Twitter new logo: Elon Musk replaces Blue Bird with Doge meme

Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has shared new updates for the micro-blogging platform, including a significant change to the well-known blue bird logo. Musk has opted for the “doge” meme associated with the Dogecoin cryptocurrency, which previously served as the home button on the web version, as Twitter’s new logo.

Twitter users observed the appearance of the ‘doge’ meme on the web version of the platform, while no alteration was noticed on Twitter’s mobile app.

The doge image, featuring a Shiba Inu, is famously associated with the Dogecoin blockchain and cryptocurrency. Initially created as a satirical take on other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin in 2013, it has since become a recognizable symbol in the cryptocurrency world.

Musk fulfilled his promise by sharing a screenshot of his conversation with an anonymous account on March 26, 2022. The handle requested replacing the bird logo with the “doge” meme in the exchange. Musk posted this on Twitter, along with the words, “As promised.”

Musk acquired Twitter in a $44 billion deal last year and has long been a vocal admirer of the Doge meme. He used his platform on Twitter and his hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” last year to promote Dogecoin. Following the alteration to Twitter’s web logo, the value of Dogecoin soared by over 20 percent.

Musk is currently confronted with a $258 million racketeering lawsuit alleging his involvement in a pyramid scheme promoting Dogecoin.

Since taking over as CEO of the social media giant, Musk has implemented numerous changes. One of the recent updates from Twitter is the discontinuation of its previous verified program, effective April 1. This means that users who desire the coveted blue checkmarks will now have to pay a monthly fee of $8.

After the New York Times’ confirmation that it won’t be paying for a verified check, Twitter has taken the checkmark off the account.
