Immediately, DOGE began pumping, and is currently up 27% since the Twitter CEO’s executive decision.
Musk also referenced an old tweet from last year before he purchased the social media giant where he seemingly joked about changing the Twitter logo to “a Doge.”

At time of writing, DOGE is trading at $0.0979.
