Following a tweet from Twitter owner Elon Musk an “interim” X logo replaced the Twitter bird logo.
Leading up to the change, Musk spent a LOT of time tweeting about it starting with a tweet saying .
soon we shall bid adieu to the twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.”
That was followed by a second adding,
if a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow.”
Hundreds is not thousands told musk they created the new logo, including myself.
At one point, he joined a Twitter Spaces session called
No one talk until we summon Elon Musk.”
He sat silently for almost an hour before unmuting and confirming he would be changing Twitter’s logo,
we’re cutting the Twitter logo from the building with blowtorches.”
Finally rebranding the site will be the clearest declaration yet that this is no longer the same social network that it was before Musk purchased it last year for $44 billion.
Musk reportedly emailed Twitter employees overnight to inform them of the change. Also added that X.com now redirects to Twitter.com.
