Twitter and DOGE. In March last year, during correspondence with Musk, a trader under the nickname WSBChairman offered the billionaire to buy Twitter and change the logo for the image of DOGE. Back then Musk said it would be “sickkk,” and two months later bought the social network for $44 billion.

On March 23, DOGE rose by 4% after Musk offered to pay a subscriber in meme coin for access to Twitter’s headquarters.

Earlier, the billionaire said he would eat a Happy Meal live on television if McDonald’s started accepting Dogecoin as a payment option. After that, lawyer John Deaton warned that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) may classify DOGE as a security.
