For context, after rising to as high as $0.70 during the last bull cycle, Dogecoin prices plunged over 90% through 2022, falling to as low as $0.05.

Tweets aren’t everything

Usually, the number of tweets about a cryptocurrency project can be used to measure popularity. The more tweets there are related to a crypto project, the more likely it is that it can be trending and that the crypto community engages with the platform.

Nevertheless, in most cases, considering the misuse of bots, the credibility of these tweets should be questioned. Depending on the popularity of projects, some rogue actors may be paid to spam the platform, increasing the number of tweets.

Therefore, while the number of tweets can be a metric to measure activity, it does not necessarily mean that projects with more tweets have a better development team or use modern technology than those with low social media activity.

To address this threat, Twitter has said it will crack down on bots and take appropriate measures to prevent the spread of views on the platform.

Some of the steps taken include using bot detection tools and integrating artificial intelligence to flag accounts with suspicious activities.
