Twitter CEO, Mr Elon Musk, has gone ahead with plans and officially changed the microblogging platform’s famous bird logo to an “X” on Monday. It was reported on Sunday that the billionaire said the platform would soon “bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.”

Twitter CEO, Ms Linda Yaccarino, wrote in a post on Sunday that X will be “centred in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking,” adding that the platform will also be powered by artificial intelligence.”

Mr Musk, who serves as executive chairman and CTO of the company, said that tweets will now be called “x’s,” though when asked about what retweets would be called, he wrote that the “concept should be rethought.”

He founded X.com back in 1997, which eventually became PayPal. His space startup SpaceX has ‘X’ as the logo. And most recently, he founded an AI company called X.ai. In April, the Musk-owned social network changed its legal name from Twitter Inc. to X Corp.

This is not the first time Mr Musk is changing the Twitter logo.

Earlier this year, he briefly changed the social network’s logo to the Dogecoin meme— the Shiba Inu dog breed, but later reverted the change.
