Dogecoin could face tough competition from Twitter coin
Dogecoin community is awaiting Elon Musk’s adoption of DOGE as the cryptocurrency for payments on Twitter. As DOGE celebrates its ninth anniversary as a meme coin, Forbes reported new developments on Twitter’s cryptocurrency.
Tech sources told Forbes that according to leaked Twitter code, Musk’s team is working on a new game-changing feature. Amid speculation on which cryptocurrency will be chosen by the Twitter CEO, the social media platform is developing a “Twitter coin.”
Twitter code shows that the potential “Twitter coin” is under development and this could rival both Bitcoin and Dogecoin, the current top contenders for payments on the social media app.
Nima Owji, owner of a Twitter-leaks account told followers that:
Twitter is working on coins. It isn’t rolled out yet; there is little information out there as to what this is exactly.
Owji shared screenshots of a Twitter interface showing “coins” as an option for tipping content creators on the platform.

Elon Musk is popularly known as the self-proclaimed Dogefather, therefore it remains to be seen whether “Twitter coins” will be released as the platform’s cryptocurrency. It remains unclear whether they would be used as a reward that can be redeemed for some other cryptocurrency on the social media app’s interface.
Musk has supported the idea of payments on Twitter. On a Twitter space’s broadcast, Musk told two million listeners,
WeChat has a lot of functionality that Twitter should have. It’s kind of a no-brainer for Twitter to have payments, both fiat currency and crypto, and to make that easy and simple for people to use.
A group of Dogecoin supporters on the app believe Twitter coin is codename for DOGE, while awaiting further clarity on the matter.
