Dogecoin (DOGE) price is up today as traders speculate about its addition to Twitter’s rebranded social media platform dubbed “X.”
DOGE price hits May 2023 high
On July 25, DOGE price climbed nearly 5.5% to $0.078, its highest level in two months.
The token’s intraday gains came as a part of a weekly rally that started two days ago when Elon Musk rebranded Twitter to X while adding the DOGE symbol to his bio.
Since then, Dogecoin has jumped over 11%, akin to its previous bullish reactions to Musk’s pro-dogecoin statements.
On July 25, Musk revealed X as an “everything app,” with a special focus on financial services.
Twitter was acquired by X Corp both to ensure freedom of speech and as an accelerant for X, the everything app. This is not simply a company renaming itself, but doing the same thing.
The Twitter name made sense when it was just 140 character messages going back and forth – like…

That has prompted some analysts to believe that the billionaire entrepreneur would add a DOGE payment option on X — more than a year after flirting with the idea during a social media interaction.
“Just watch Elon Musk troll everyone by making DOGE the first crypto to be used on the X platform,” David Gokhshtein, the founder of Gokhshtein Media, asserted.
DOGE bears liquidated
The Dogecoin price rally has triggered more than $6 million worth of short liquidations since July 24, comprising around 60% of the total positions liquidated.
Short sellers exit their positions with buy orders, thus pushing the prices higher. That further shows why the Dogecoin price rose on July 25. Nonetheless, DOGE’s open interest-weighted funding rate has slipped into the negative territory, showing bears are paying bulls to keep their positions open.
That shows most derivative traders have turned bearish toward the Dogecoin market despite its ongoing price rally.
Dogecoin price analysis 2023
From a technical standpoint, the DOGE price has entered the breakout stage of its prevailing bump-and-run-reversal bottom pattern, with a price target of around $0.88, up around 15%, by September 2023.
Conversely, a bearish scenario involves Dogecoin entering a short-term correction as its daily relative strength index nears 70, an overbought area, and its price tests $0.078 as resistance. The $0.078 level was instrumental in capping DOGE’s upside attempts in March 2023.

In this case, DOGE price’s immediate downside target appears to be around $0.073 for July, coinciding with its 0.382 Fib line of the Fibonacci retracement graph.
