Elon Musk’s continues to bring some major changes to Twitter, some of which have been met with backlash like the company’s Tweet view limit. However, Musk is not done yet and now he has changed the Twitter logo, replacing the Blue Bird symbol with the letter X, which is Twitter’s parent company, called the X corporation.
Twitter’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Linda Yaccarino, unveiled the new logo on the social media platform. “X is here! Let’s do this,” she Tweeted and posted a picture of the logo projected on the company’s offices in San Francisco.

The new logo is the latest change for Twitter since Elon Musk bought the social media network for $44 billion last year. On Sunday, the eccentric billionaire said in a series of Tweets that he was looking to make the change worldwide as soon as Monday. “And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.”
“GoodbyeTwitter” and “TwitterX” have been trending on the social media platform with reference to the change in Twitter’s Logo and several users have criticized the move. Since Musk’s takeover, the company has already changed its business name to X Corp, which reflects Elon’s vision to create a ‘Super App’ like China’s WeChat.
Twitter currently has around 200 million daily active users, but the social media platform has suffered a lot of technical failures in recent months since the business tycoon took over the platform for $44 billion last year and sacked much of its staff.
Some of the major changes to the platform include changing the company’s policy on free-services, changes to content moderation, and return of previously banned accounts.
