Shiba Inu Overtakes Dogecoin in the Number of Twitter Followers

Dogecoin was all the rage during the first half of 2021, but the meme token got sidelined by its rival Shiba Inu which took center stage during the second half of the year

Dogecoin’s hype fizzled out after its price remained stagnant for months and comparatively SHIB delivered better performance in the indices

Therefore, Shiba Inu’s popularity grew by leaps and bounds and brought in another batch of new investors into the market

Fast-forward to a year later now, Shiba Inu outgrew Dogecoin in terms of Twitter followers

Dogecoin had rock-solid followers of 3.1 million on Twitter, Shiba Inu beat Doge by surpassing its number of holders

While Dogecoin has 3,439,746 followers, Shiba Inu now has 3,441,762 followers

SHIB has 2,220 more Twitter followers than Dogecoin currently

Dogecoin joined Twitter in December 2013 and Shiba Inu joined the social media platform in February 2021

SHIB stayed true to its tagline of the ‘Dogecoin killer’ by bypassing everything that Doge stood for

Last year, SHIB had also briefly crossed Doge’s market cap and knocked it out of the top 10 cryptos list

However, Doge reclaimed its place and is now the 10th biggest crypto while SHIB stands at the 12th position

Both Doge and SHIB are being widely accepted as legal payments around the world by several businesses
