In a surprising turn of events, Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter since 2021, has unveiled a dramatic rebranding strategy for the social media giant.
Since Musk assumed the leadership of Twitter in 2021, the company has seen remarkable changes under his dynamic stewardship. The decision to embrace the name ‘X’ represents a bold step away from the platform’s traditional microblogging roots. It reflects Musk’s unwavering commitment to innovation, disruption, and pushing the boundaries of what social media can achieve. Under Musk’s transformative tenure, Twitter has undergone significant changes, with what seems like a vision to become a comprehensive “super app” akin to China’s WeChat.

The focal point of this monumental transformation is the platform’s new domain: X.com. The domain’s simplicity and elegance echo the essence of ‘X,’ inviting users to explore a world of endless possibilities within the revamped digital realm.

Accompanying this profound metamorphosis is a momentous logo change. The iconic blue bird that has long been synonymous with Twitter is being replaced with the striking and modern letter ‘X.’ The new logo serves as a visual representation of Twitter’s metamorphosis into a platform that will redefine how people connect, communicate, and share information in the digital age.
As the news of the rebranding spreads, reactions from users and experts have been mixed. Some are thrilled about the prospects of a more versatile and innovative platform, while others express concerns about how the changes may impact Twitter’s original simplicity and appeal.
The whole 𝕏 thing is truly embarassing and Musk's childish mismanagement of Twitter is the most effective propaganda against the excessive power of economic oligarchs in a long time.
