Elon Musk’s enigmatic world of tweets has once again set the Dogecoin and crypto community abuzz with speculation. In a recent cryptic message, the tech billionaire revealed an ambitious transformation for Twitter, now rebranded as “X.” But hidden within the mystique, tantalizing clues suggest that Dogecoin, the beloved memecoin, might soon find a home on this platform.
“Twitter was acquired by X Corp both to ensure freedom of speech and as an accelerant for X, the everything app. This is not simply a company renaming itself, but doing the same thing,” Musk’s tweet unveiled the grand vision behind Twitter’s rebirth. He emphasized that the platform would evolve into much more than a microblogging site, and instead, it would become a comprehensive communication platform with the ability to revolutionize users’ financial transactions.
“In the months to come, we will add comprehensive communications and the ability to conduct your entire financial world,” Musk disclosed, indicating X’s intended role as a financial powerhouse. With this revelation, the Twitter name and its iconic bird logo had to be discarded, as they no longer resonated with the new financial identity.
Dogecoin X Twitter
Musk’s clever wordplay left the crypto community with a question: Could the transformation of Twitter into “X” pave the way for Dogecoin integration? The answer, it seems, lies within Musk’s subtle nods to the beloved memecoin.
After the rebranding, Musk changed his location on Twitter to “????Ð,” sparking speculation. The “????” clearly represents the new “X” branding, while the “Ð” signifies Dogecoin’s iconic symbol. A sly wink to the community, or a deliberate hint?

Furthermore, in a playful exchange with one of his engineers, Musk recalled a time when Twitter briefly rebranded to a Shiba Inu dog, in reference to Dogecoin’s mascot. Musk responded to Jonah Katz who said: “Twitter could rebrand to a donkey and I’d still scroll for 6 hours a day.” His boss Musk answered with a laughing smiley and added: “We rebranded to a Shiba Inu dog for a while. No impact.”
While Musk did not provide a timeline for the rollout of X’s financial services, his track record of bold and innovative decisions makes it clear that he aims to lead the way in shaping the future of finance and communication: Dogecoin, Bitcoin and crypto seem to be an option.
As the community eagerly analyzed every tweet, Raoul Pal chimed in with his own insights. In a July 25 tweet, he surmised that Musk might use Dogecoin for global payments on the platform, suggesting the eccentric billionaire’s fondness for the meme coin. Pal stated, “He will use crypto to be able to make global payments for creators etc. My guess is he uses Doge.”
Moreover, Pal speculated that Musk’s potential choice of Dogecoin over creating a platform-specific token might be strategic. He suggested that DOGE could help circumvent securities laws and mitigate execution risks. Renowned analyst @CryptoKaleo added:
If I had to guess, Elon takes another few days, maybe even another few weeks to actually say how he plans on integrating DOGE into X. I think there’s a solid chance he actually does something this time though, and him including it in his bio at the same time as the X rebrand isn’t just a coincidence.
With Twitter’s rebranding to X, we can’t help but wonder if the stage is being set for Dogecoin’s grand entrance. Could this be the moment the Dogecoin community has been waiting for since the acquisition in November 2022?
At press time, the Dogecoin price defied the broader market trend by rising 8% in the last 24 hours. The DOGE price has broken out of an ascending triangle formation, but has now found its first resistance at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.0784. Overcoming this resistance is crucial to confirm the trend reversal.
