Twitter, Elon Musk announces farewell to the logo and presents the new one: an “X”

Elon Musk has announced his farewell to the Twitter bird, emblem of the platform since its inception, and has unveiled the new one: an “X”.

Elon Musk’s announcement

“We will soon be saying goodbye to the Twitter brand and, gradually, to all birds,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post earlier today. The Space X, Tesla and Twitter mogul added, “If a good enough X logo is ready by tonight, we’ll roll it around the world tomorrow.”

The new logo

The image posted on Twitter by Elon Musk is a flashing “X” and the entrepreneur pointed out in a Twitter Spaces audio chat that “Yes”, the Twitter logo changes and “should have been done a long time ago”. Perhaps inspired by his space company Space X, now a reference point for NASA and space flights, Musk has repeatedly admitted that he loves this symbol and, since he bought Twitter, has changed the commercial name of the social network to “X Corp” . One of Musk’s many goals would be to create a super app that resembles the Chinese WeChat.
