Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has revealed a new logo for the popular social media platform, opting to replace the iconic blue bird symbol with a striking ‘X’.
Linda Yaccarino, Twitter’s chief executive officer, shared the exciting news on her Twitter account, tweeting, “X is here! Let’s do this,” as the white ‘X’ logo was displayed against a black background.
To make the announcement more visible, the new logo was projected onto the company’s offices in San Francisco, as reported by Reuters.
This recent logo change is part of the ongoing transformation since Musk acquired Twitter for a staggering $44 billion last year.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, the billionaire entrepreneur mentioned his intention to implement the change globally, with the transition potentially commencing as soon as Monday.
Musk tweeted, “And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.”
Both Linda Yaccarino’s and Elon Musk’s Twitter handles are already featuring the new ‘X’ logo, although the traditional Twitter blue bird symbol remains visible across the platform.
As the news spread, “#GoodbyeTwitter” started trending on the platform, with many users expressing their opinions and some criticizing the new logo.
