Bye, Bye Birdie: Musk says Twitter is changing its logo to the letter “X”

A few minutes into Sunday morning Elon Musk logged into his Twitter account Publish, “and soon we will tell the Twitter brand and gradually to all the birds.” Musk posted the image of the blinking “X” and answered yes when asked if Twitter’s logo was going to change. He added that “”It should have been done a long time ago”.
After the aforementioned “X” was published, Musk added, “If a good enough X logo is published tonight, tomorrow we will go live.” The multi-billionaire owner of Twitter has a habit of making redundant comments on Twitter and then changing them with another tweet a few hours later, so we’ll have to actually see a new logo unveiled before we can say for sure what’s going on.

The first tweets discussing the logo change were spotted by me Reuters. The report noted that Musk changed Twitter’s company name to X Corp. after spending $44 billion to acquire the social media platform back in October. Musk’s goal is to build a “super app” like China’s WeChat that is not only a social media hangout, but also used for instant messaging, video games, as a mobile payment app, and more. WeChat has over 1 billion monthly active users. Twitter has about 450 million monthly active users worldwide.
Musk’s comments contradict Twitter’s own website, which says its blue bird trademark is “our most recognizable asset. That’s why we’re so protective of it.” But if nothing changes Musk’s mind in the next few hours, the Twitter bird may fly away to be replaced by a single letter. While Twitter began operating in 2006, it wasn’t until 2010 that the blue bird we all know as Twitter’s trademark was created. It even has a name, seriously. as per logomywayHe was named Larry T. Bird after Boston Celtics Hall of Famer Larry Bird.
While it’s unclear whether Twitter will still call its messages “tweets” if the bird logo is replaced, the term may be too entrenched for any change to be made.
