First with national currencies, then with cryptocurrencies

Twitter has already commissioned a small team to prepare the design for integrating payments into the platform, in line with Elon Musk’s vision of an “app for everything”, similar to China’s WeChat.

Elon Musk is optimistic that Twitter will offer fintech services such as peer-to-peer transactions, savings accounts, and debit cards, in addition to the popular social media platform’s familiar features.

Dogecoin showed a slight rise
