Twitter's traditional bird icon has been replaced with an image of a Doge, which appears to be a nod to dogecoin, the joke cryptocurrency that CEO Elon Musk is currently being sued over.
The doge logo was introduced two days after Musk asked a judge to throw out a $258 billion racketeering lawsuit, which accused him of running a pyramid scheme to support dogecoin. The change in logo was addressed by Musk in a tweet, where he referred to a year-old conversation in which another user suggested that Musk should "just buy Twitter" and "change the bird logo to a doge."
While it is unclear whether the change is permanent, the price of dogecoin saw a surge of more than 18% over the past 24 hours.
