Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Twitter, has revealed that the social media platform is planning to change its bird logo. In a post on his Twitter account, Musk announced that they will bid farewell to the Twitter brand and gradually phase out all references to birds. He also mentioned that if a good enough X logo is suggested, it will go live worldwide the following day.
Since taking over Twitter in October 2022, Musk has already made several changes to the platform. The company’s business name has been changed to X Corp, indicating Musk’s ambition to create a “super app” similar to China’s WeChat. Additionally, Twitter temporarily replaced its bird logo with Dogecoin’s shiba inu dog in April, which contributed to a surge in the meme coin’s market value.
Moreover, Twitter recently announced that it would impose daily limits on how many tweets various accounts can read. This move reportedly inspired the creation of Threads, a rival service owned by Meta, which achieved 100 million sign-ups within five days of its launch.
