Bitcoin falls after Elon Musk tweets breakup meme

Bitcoin’s price fell Friday morning after Elon Musk posted a tweet suggesting he’s fallen out of love with the world’s top cryptocurrency.
The billionaire Tesla CEO tweeted a meme about a couple breaking up over the male partner quoting Linkin Park lyrics, adding the hashtag #Bitcoin and a broken heart emoji.
Bitcoin fell 4% to a price of $36,981 at around 6 a.m. ET Friday, according to data from Coin Metrics. Other digital coins followed suit, with No. 2 cryptocurrency ether dipping 5% to $2,662 and dogecoin — Musk’s favored crypto — sinking almost 5% to around 37 cents.
