Twitter Initiates Its Transformation to ‘X’, Altering Its Renowned Bird Logo

by admin
Twitter Rebranding

The longstanding bird logo of Twitter, which had once been temporarily replaced by Dogecoin’s Shiba Inu, is genuinely drawing its final bow. The company’s rebranding to “X” was announced by Elon Musk and Twitter’s (or should we say X?) CEO Linda Yaccarino. The new insignia was showcased on the San Francisco headquarters of the company. The simplistic white logo against a black backdrop has now taken the place of the bird in the upper left corner of the website, with both Musk and Yaccarino featuring it alongside their names and verified blue ticks. Twitter’s official account has also undergone a name change to X, accompanied by the new logo and a striking black background. As of now, the blue bird continues to represent the browser icon, though an imminent change is expected.

Musk’s fondness for the letter ‘X’ is well-known, as indicated by his naming choices for his 1999 banking startup x.com, his aerospace company SpaceX, and his recent AI venture, xAI. As an interesting note, entering x.com into your browser redirects you to Twitter’s homepage, a result of Musk’s purchase of x.com from PayPal in 2017.

Ever since Musk assumed control of Twitter, significant promises about the platform’s future have been made, and the rebrand is no different. According to Yaccarino, “X represents the future state of boundless interaction, focusing on audio, video, messaging, payments/banking, fostering a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities.” She echoed many of Musk’s previous sentiments in a Twitter thread, adding, “AI-driven, X aims to unite us in ways we’re only starting to envision.” It remains to be seen whether the rebranding will rejuvenate the company’s lost advertising revenue or help it stand against competitors like Meta’s Threads.

Interesting move. wonder if this will get Twitter’s ad revenue back up. Competition’s tough with Meta though. Good luck, X!
