Shib’s official Twitter account now has over 1.8 million followers.
In comparison, the Ethereum network’s official account has 1.7 million followers.
Shiba Inu is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token cryptocurrency that was launched last August by Ryoshi, an anonymous founder.
After posting insane gains in the second quarter, the meme token experienced a resurgence in popularity last month as a result of an 800% price increase.
On the day it surpassed Dogecoin in market cap, SHIB generated over a million tweets.
SHIB’s Reddit community has 414,000 members, nearly four times the size of the subreddit dedicated to the Japanese breed of the same name.
Shib is still not the most popular coin on Twitter. Dogecoin’s official Twitter account is followed by 2.4 million people.
The official Bitcoin Twitter handle has 3.6 million followers. The account was rumored to be run by Bitcoin Cash supporter Roger Ver, which the entrepreneur denied. In August 2019, @Bitcoin abruptly deleted all tweets about the contentious Bitcoin fork and adopted a dramatically different narrative, sparking speculation about its new owner.
