Obviously, this was intended as a joke, but is there a kernel of truth or a sign of things to come in this tweet? Is Elon Musk dropping hints, or just trolling?
Musk has stated that he aims on turning Twitter into a better version of WeChat—a popular social messaging app and payment platform in China.
More specifically, he has talked at length about turning Twitter into a payment processing system where payments can be made to users directly in-app.
Musk has, at times, jokingly and seriously considered integrating Dogecoin into Twitter and using the popular cryptocurrency as Twitter’s native currency.
Could his recent tweet, which uses the likeness of the DOGE mascot, be a hint of things to come?
Speculation has been running…
