Twitter logo: why a dog instead of a blue bird?

This Monday, April 3, the Twitter logo has changed. Definitively ? And why a dog?

Finished the blue bird on Twitter? This could give some cold sweats to the most conservative (and change-averse freaks) of social network users. A Shiba Inu emoji - a Japanese breed dog - took the place of the little piaf on the evening of April 3 and this raises a wave of questions, especially since Elon Musk has accustomed the world to some jokes in recent months concerning his new toy.

The billionaire seems to be the source of this surprise: he lifted part of the mystery last night by posting a meme on his Twitter account, with the dog presenting identity papers to a policeman, telling him that the little blue bird was "an old photo". As Tech Crunch recalls, this meme is known to the world as DOGE.

And Elon Musk uses it to refer to the Dogecoin affair – a cryptocurrency – which concerns him directly: several groups of investors have filed a complaint in the United States against the boss of Twitter, accused of having created a bubble speculation around this virtual currency due to many rave tweets. Elon Musk said he had initiated proceedings with his lawyers to have the complaint dismissed. And the man is very sarcastic.
