Microsoft, the Redmond-based tech juggernaut, recently shared a cryptic tweet that has spread much excitement among the Shib Army. Hundreds of Shib Army members reacted optimistically to the tweet.

Shiba Inu investors speculated that Microsoft's recent tweet could be reference to a potential game-changing partnership between the tech behemoth and the rising meme coin. It all started when Microsoft's official Twitter handle mentioned types of "dogs" participating in online meetings on Teams on its business communication platform.

"There are two types of dogs on Teams meetings," the tweet reads. In another tweet, the official Microsoft Teams account said, "Teams calls are 10x better when dogs are involved." However, the tech company has not made any official statement regarding the same.

Whatever Microsoft means with its tweets is still unknown, but it is enough to excite the ever-supportive Shib Army. One Twitter user who goes by the name IrelandShib tweeted, "#Shib Army could you imagine what we all hope this means. The possibilities would be endless. In #Shib and @Microsoft we trust."

SHIB's top influencer, who goes by the name Milkshake, is hopeful for potential collaboration between Shiba Inu and Microsoft. "Woof! Let me guess #ShibaInu @Microsoft," she said. SHIB's lead developer Shytoshi Kusama also noticed the tweet and responded with a surprised GIF.

While speculations within the Shiba Inu community may appear slightly optimistic, it is not a wild idea. Microsoft is among the few companies that ventured into cryptocurrencies relatively early by accepting Bitcoin in the late part of 2014.

The Redmond-based tech giant also listed a job posting in February concerning its own Web 3 development strategy. As for Shiba Inu, the team collaborated with former Activision Blizzard VP of technology William Volk for its Shib Games.

Surprisingly, Microsoft announced earlier this year that it is acquiring Activision Blizzard. Following the deal's announcement, Shytoshi Kusama mentioned in a tweet about fun seeing "big players share the same as a "meme coin" on the MV too."

"ICYMI: This acquisition echoes our last move to bring aboard former Activision VP .@william_volk and hiring of .@PlaysideStudios to work on our game. It's fun to see the big players share the same vision as a "meme coin" on the MV too. #bullish! #ShibArmy," Kusama tweeted.

On the other hand, Shiba Inu has also announced its metaverse project by the name of 'Shiba Lands.' This platform would enable users to purchase digital real estate with crypto.

Shiba Inu enjoyed several weeks of price hikes in a market that is still bouncing back. At the time of writing, SHIB trades upward 0.84% at $0.00002913 with $2,184,924,610 24-hour volume, as per Coinmarketcap data.
