A short story about how @elonmusk got catfished into pumping #dogecoin by some tech bros.

@PeterSchiff @WARONRUGS @mrwhale @csreinicke @CoinDesk @coinbureau
For clarity, Elon Musk occasionally pumped dogecoin in the past. However, things ramped up this winter and spring when several very attractive women were suddenly enthusiastic dogecoin supporters on Twitter.
One of these accounts is @itsALLrisky. Elon Musk interacted with this account on several occasions as "she" encouraged him to pump dogecoin.
And Elon did pump dogecoin. Repeatedly. He seemed to really enjoy interacting with @itsALLrisky. So, I took a look at the first accounts followed by @itsALLrisky. A bunch of young tech bros. Hmm.
Then I traced the profile photo. It was popular on Tumblr some time ago. It's the photo of a young model in Italy. I found the source photo on @instagram. Funny, she never once mentions dogecoin on her hundreds of IG posts.
So, either this model started her twitter by following a bunch of random tech bros and dedicating herself to dogecoin. Or a bunch of random tech bros stole her popular tumblr photo and successfully catfished the richest man in the world into pumping dogecoin.
It should be noted that several more dogecoin pump accounts popped up within the same timeframe. Some of these are clearly related to each other. Some are not.
Anyway...not financial advice, BUT....

Maybe don't buy dog meme money pumped by frat-boy tech bros.
