Dogecoin DOGE/USD co-creator Billy Markus commented on Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk’s now revived bid to purchase Twitter Inc TWTR.
What Happened: Markus’ comments came on Twitter on Tuesday. He said whether Musk buys Twitter and makes it better or ends up ruining the platform it's a “win-win.”
When a user suggested what if Musk just decides to delete Twitter, Markus said, “seems like a great idea to me.”
Yet another Twitter user asked what if Musk bans all crypto accounts and then goes on to make Twitter better “but without us?!”
Markus said then he can “get a more productive hobby” — adding “win-win-win.”
