Dogecoin was all the rage during the first half of 2021, but the meme token got sidelined by its rival Shiba Inu which took center stage during the second half of the year. Dogecoin’s hype fizzled out after its price remained stagnant for months and comparatively SHIB delivered better performance in the indices. Therefore, Shiba Inu’s popularity grew by leaps and bounds and brought in another batch of new investors into the market.

Fast-forward to a year later now, Shiba Inu outgrew Dogecoin in terms of Twitter followers. Dogecoin had rock-solid followers of 3.1 million on Twitter, Shiba Inu beat Doge by surpassing its number of holders. While Dogecoin has 3,439,746 followers, Shiba Inu now has 3,441,762 followers. SHIB has 2,220 more Twitter followers than Dogecoin currently.

However, Doge reclaimed its place and is now the 10th biggest crypto while SHIB stands at the 12th position.
