* Twitter’s iconic Blue Bird logo has been replaced with a new Doge logo.
* The change is visible on the web version of the social media platform for now.
* Twitter CEO Elon Musk has confirmed the change via a tweet.

Ever since Elon Musk has acquired Twitter, the social media platform has been witnessing frequent changes.

Twitter Blue has been revamped and is now offering additional perks to those who have subscribed, ranging from a verification checkmark, more exposure to the Blue subscribers, all the way to the ability to change the Twitter icon colour.

Speaking of the Twitter icon, the platform’s iconic logo can easily be identified from a mile, as the Blue Bird logo has more or less been imprinted on our minds.

After all, it should not take a genius to realize even the core feature of the platform, a Tweet more or less symbolizes the bird chirping.

Things, however, are changing really fast, and now, the iconic Twitter Blue Bird logo has been replaced with, well, a Doge logo. Here’s everything you need to know about the new change.

Doge to the Twitter: platform gets a new icon

Twitter CEO, Elon Musk recently tweeted a meme-tweet, which showed Doge showing their identification card to a police officer and claiming that the photo on the card is old.
This led many to speculate that the Twitter logo might be changing soon and changed it is. If you open Twitter on the web, you will notice that the Blue Bird logo has now been replaced with a new Doge logo.

The logo is working just fine for the purpose it primarily solves (jumping straight to the homepage), but is currently the talk of the Twitter town, as even the hashtag #TwitterLogo has been trending for hours now.

For those wondering as to why the change has been implemented, there appears to be no technical reason for the same, as the change appears to be more of a “told you” moment for Elon.

Turns out, Mr. Musk had once had a conversation with a Twitter user, who suggested him to buy the platform and change the bird logo to a Doge.

This conversation obviously happened before Elon took over Twitter, and appears to finally have lived up to his promise. He even Quote Retweeted the conversation earlier today:

Taking this tweet into consideration, the logo change appears to be a fun gig Elon has pulled off in the apt month of April, and in all likelihood, the Blue Bird logo will make a comeback. Or… will it?

Faqs on Elon Musk, Twitter Doge Icon

1) What was the addition by Elon Musk on Doge to Twitter icon ?

Ans) In another setback to Twitter users, Elon Musk replaced the iconic blue bird logo of the micro-blogging site with the Shiba Inu logo related to the cryptocurrency Dogecoin.

The step was taken by Musk a day after he appealed for dismissal of a $258 billion racketeering lawsuit which accused of him inflating the value of Dogecoin intentionally.

Tweeting about the hilarious update, Musk shared a post on Tuesday that showed the Doge meme’s face riding a car while a police officer is checking the driving license on which the ‘old’ blue bird logo is displayed.

As per Bloomberg, the value of Dogecoin increased by nearly 30 per cent after the sudden appearance of its picture in the website interface and the term ‘Doge’ started trending on Twitter.

Musk posted a screenshot of an old conversation with a Twitter user who had asked him to “buy Twitter and change the bird logo to a doge’ and captioned the post, ‘as promised’.

However, Twitter’s mobile version remained unchanged. Dogecoin also responded to the unexpected change from its official Twitter account by invoking the famous meme’s style and wrote, “Very currency. Wow. Much Coin. How Money. So Crypto.”

In February, an image of the ‘Doge’ posing as the new head of Twitter was shared by Musk who had written that the ‘new CEO is amazing’. In 2013, the meme coin was released as a joke to make fun of other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

The replacement of the blue bird with the ‘Doge’ meme was Musk’s way of retorting back to the lawsuit filed by the Dogecoin investors against him.

The lawsuit was on Friday termed by Musk’s lawyers as a ‘fanciful work of fiction’ over Musk’s ‘innocuous and often silly tweets’ regarding the cryptocurrency.

The legal team of Musk argued that statements like ‘Dogecoin Rulz’ and ‘no highs, no lows, only Doge’ held no ground in supporting the claim that Musk purposely increased the price of the cryptocurrency by more than 36,000 per cent in a span of two years and that he then allowed it to crash, which resulted in huge losses for its investors.
