In a surprising announcement, Elon Musk revealed plans to rebrand Twitter as “X.” The well-known blue bird logo will make way for a sleek “X” logo. If all goes well, the change could happen as early as Monday.
Earlier this year, Musk renamed his company to “X Holdings Corp,” and now, Twitter follows suit, signaling a cohesive narrative of innovation and progress.
Musk believes this rebranding should have happened a long time ago. By shedding the old identity, he aims to push Twitter forward and address challenges like misinformation and user engagement. This move signifies a fresh start, embracing a more dynamic and futuristic outlook.
Now if you visit x.com it will direct you to Twitter, confirming that the platform’s rebrand is in motion.
He tweeted on the logo change: “And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.”
Musk’s influence on Twitter could redefine the social media landscape. Either this is a correct or wrong move; time can only tell.
