People started responding to his tweet and spoke about the falling price of DOGE. One follower wrote, “Can we talk about why doge is down to 13 cents I haven’t seen this in a year, so the safe moon is the better investment ??”
Another response came from @Richard84489716 saying, “Because it's cheaper for Robinhood drop the price as low as possible before releasing wallets.”
