On Sunday, the billionaire owner of Twitter said in a series of posts on his account that he was going to make the change globally as soon as possible on Monday. He wrote on Twitter: “And soon we will say goodbye to the twitter brand and gradually to all the birds”.
Musk posted an image of a flashing “X” and later answered “Yes” in the Twitter Spaces audio chat when asked if Twitter’s logo would change, adding that “it should have been done a long time ago.”
The Interim X logo will be released later today. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 23, 2023
Under Musk’s tumultuous tenure since he bought Twitter in October 2022, the company changed its business name to X Corp, reflecting his vision to create a “super app” like China’s WeChat.
Last October, he said that “Twitter’s purchase is an accelerator to create X, the everything app.”
