Coming up next in the list of changes implemented by Elon Musk to Twitter, is Twitter X. Going for a rather “minimalist art deco”, Musk rebranded the OG Twitter Bird to a glowing X.
‘X’ has been chosen as Twitter’s official logo instead of the iconic bird. Elon Musk made the announcement of “change” over the week. Following the announcement, the Twitter X website has already gone live.
Musk tweeted that x.com is now also redirected to twitter.com, which is noteworthy. Musk also described this design as “interim” in the post, so a future logo update may be in order.
The social networking platform will soon get rid of all the “birds” as Musk stated. He also asked tweeters to “bid adieu to the former Twitter brand”.
Following the announcement, Some users tweeted their reactions and concerns regarding Twitter X. One said “What will the ‘tweets’ be called now?”
To which Musk replied “X’s.”
Announcements and Trends
Linda Yaccarino, the CEO of Twitter, announced the decision on Monday by tweeting the image and stating, “X is here! Let’s do this!
Furthermore, Linda tweets – “X will go further and will have features “centered in audio, video, messaging, payment/banking” and make it a “global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities.”
GoodbyeTwitter was trending minutes through the announcement with users following this change. Twitter X is Elon Musk‘s way to rebrand the platform, which he has wanted to do completely.
Musk and Twitter X
It’s commonly known that Musk has a fascination with the letter “X.” In 1997, he started X.com, which later changed its name to PayPal. The logo for his space company SpaceX is an ‘X’. In addition, he established X.ai, an AI business. The social network owned by Elon Musk changed its formal name from Twitter Inc. to X Corp. in April.
The Tesla CEO has mentioned making the social network “X, the everything app” after he gained control of Twitter.
Twitter is a platform that started in 2006. The platform has always stayed active and is a hub for all information you can think of. Especially, when it comes to worldly affairs, Twitter is the best place to look out for opinionated people. Naturally, when a huge change, such as this rebranding, is announced, people will have mixed reactions to it.
One user shared an illustration of an X shedding blue feathers, symbolizing the old logo and Twitter X. However, another user had a different take on Twitter X and had a suggestion. Ending this with a dilemma or confusion many people expressed. So… Valid or not?
