Billy Markus, IT engineer who created Dogecoin back in 2012 together with Jackson Palmer, has taken to Twitter to say a few words to defend Elon Musk, the Tesla chief who bought Twitter last week for $44 billion.

The comments were in response to a tweet published by Twitter's Yoel Roth, head of safety & integrity at Twitter. He shared that there has been a surge in hateful conduct on the social network since the end of last week – when Musk finally completed the deal to purchase Twitter.

Elon Musk, too, joined the discussion after Billy Markus.

Doge co-founder being sarcastic about "Elon Musk’s fault"

In response to the thread of Roth shared by Elon Musk's close friend Jason Calacanis, Markus posted a sarcastic tweet.

He stated saecastically that, of course, before the Tesla CEO bought the platform, there was no hate on Twitter at all, and now that Musk made the purchase, the paradise of nice and polite conversations has been ruined.

Elon Musk also responded to this disguised accusation, saying that it is entirely his fault.

In his tweet, Yoel Roth stated that the Twitter team managed to eliminate the impressions on hateful content to nearly zero.

He did not accuse Elon Musk of being the cause of this hate surge.

In an earlier tweet today, head of Tesla and now of Twitter too, Elon Musk, posted a Halloween picture with a pumpkin and a Shiba Inu dog wearing a t-shirt with a Twitter logo on it.

The community, and influencer David Gokhshtein in particular, decided that Musk this way was spreading the word about the future integration of the leading meme cryptocurrency on Twitter.

Starting with a rally last week, Dogecoin has surged by now almost 120%.
