First Time In Two Years, Elon Musk Directly Mentions Shiba Inu in Twitter Interaction: Details

In a surprising turn of events, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter, directly mentioned Shiba Inu for the first time in two years, stirring up speculation within the cryptocurrency community. This happened in the middle of Twitter’s recent rebranding efforts, which involved a new dark theme and the replacement of the iconic Twitter bird logo with a letter X.

The mention of Shiba Inu came about when Jonah Katz, an engineer at Twitter, tweeted about his unwavering commitment to spending six hours a day on the platform, even if it rebranded itself as a donkey. Musk responded to the tweet with a laughing emoticon, noting that Twitter had previously used a Shiba Inu dog logo without any significant impact.

It’s important to clarify that Musk’s mention of Shiba Inu was not a direct reference to the cryptocurrency itself, but rather to the dog breed associated with popular cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB).

The Tesla chief likely referred to the period when Twitter temporarily adopted the Dogecoin avatar on its homepage. A quick scroll through Musk’s Twitter account reveals that his previous mention of Shiba Inu dates back precisely two years, during an active period of discussing other sensational cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin and FLOKI.

Notably, Musk’s recent tweet about Shiba Inu has garnered significant attention from crypto enthusiasts, particularly those interested in the dog-themed project.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) and New Twitter CEO

Ragnar Shib, a prominent figure in the Shiba Inu community, recently reached out to Twitter’s newly appointed CEO, Linda Yaccarino, requesting the integration of Shiba Inu into the platform. Ragnar believes that the Shiba Inu community is highly engaged and willing to collaborate in integrating Shiba Inu with Twitter. However, it’s worth mentioning that Musk remains a steadfast advocate of Dogecoin.

On the other hand, Twitter’s new CEO seems to have an interest in Shiba Inu, as evidenced by her Twitter followings. In May, it was confirmed that Yaccarino follows the official Twitter handle of the Shiba Inu token, along with several other crypto projects.


As Elon Musk’s mention of Shiba Inu in a recent tweet continues to reverberate within the crypto community, speculations abound regarding the possible implications of this interaction. Crypto enthusiasts and followers of Shiba Inu will undoubtedly keep a close eye on any potential developments surrounding its integration with Twitter.
