Elon Musk: Twitter reveals X logo to replace blue bird

The blue bird will be replaced by a white X on a black background. This is what Twitter’s boss said about the new image.

Monday morning, Linda Yaccarino sent out a tweet that said, “X is here! Let’s get started.”

Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, says that “tweets” will be changed to “x’s” and that posts will be called “x’s.”

The billionaire updated his Twitter bio to include “X.com” and changed his profile picture to the new image.

Mr. Musk wants to make a “super app” called “X.” This is his idea for a new kind of social media platform, which he has been talking about for months.

On Sunday, the investor tweeted that he wanted to change Twitter’s logo. He wrote, “Soon we will say goodbye to the Twitter brand and all the birds, one by one.”

Then he posted a picture of the new X logo being shown on the side of Twitter’s San Francisco office.

Mr. Musk changed the business’s name to X Corp and said that the switch “should have been made a long time ago.”

Mr. Musk shared a picture of a flashing “X” on Twitter, and when asked if the Twitter logo will change, he said “Yes” in a Twitter Spaces audio chat.

On the site, Ms. Yaccarino wrote that the rebranding was an exciting new chance.

“Twitter had a huge effect and changed the way we talk to each other,” she said.

“X will now go even further and change the global town square.”

The bird’s name is Larry, which Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in 2011 is a tribute to Larry Bird, a famous basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics.

People, including Martin Grasser, who created the logo in 2012, expressed their sadness on Twitter.

He said, “Today we say goodbye to this beautiful blue bird.” Later, Twitter’s best-known co-founder, Jack Dorsey, shared the tweet.
