From a bluebird to a doge meme real quick


Twitter replaces its blue bird logo with the ‘meme star’ dog

Many Twitter users went bizarre when one of the most popular social media platforms changed its logo from a bluebird to a doge meme.

Twitter’s blue bird has been taken over by the Shiba Inu dog meme, which is also the logo for Dogecoin. Surprisingly, the modification to Doge is only available on Twitter’s site version, not the Twitter app.

Musk confirmed the update while posting a conversation and responding “as promised”. Musk took control of the social media giant in a $44 billion deal last year.

He confirmed the change from Blue Bird to Doge via his Twitter account. The CEO of Twitter initially tweeted a meme of a police officer inspecting a document, which Doge claimed is an old photograph.

Musk also shared a screenshot of a conversation he had with a Twitter user before he took over the company, writing “as promised”. In the conversation, Musk asks if there is a need for a new platform, to which the user suggests that Musk should instead buy Twitter and replace the blue bird logo with a Doge

Since taking over the social media giant last October, Elon Musk has implemented numerous adjustments. Twitter just announced that it would discontinue its existing verified program on April 1, requiring users to pay a monthly of $8 (Dh29.38) for the coveted blue checkmarks.

Twitter has removed the verified checkmark from the New York Times Twitter feed after the company stated it would not pay for a verified check.

Musk commented on the situation, saying, “They voluntarily did exactly what I wanted them to do.”

He responded to a user’s comment that random Twitter users are now verified, but the New York Times is not. RZSP/Expat Media
