Dogecoin was among the top ten trending coins on Twitter Inc’s (NASDAQ:TWTR) platform on Monday.

Analysis from eToro USA and TIE indicates that Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk’s Twitter comments caused BTC to fall and DOGE to rise in the second quarter.

Musk’s comments reportedly caused DOGE to rise on average by 8.4%, 24 hours after he made them, while the comments led to a 1.6% fall in BTC prices in a similar period.
