Twitter Flies Away From its Iconic Bird, Embraces 'X' as New Logo

In a surprising twist, Twitter has officially bid farewell to its iconic bird logo and adopted a new 'X' logo. This unexpected change follows a recent announcement by Elon Musk over the weekend. The switch is already evident on the website, and x.com now redirects to twitter.com, as revealed by Musk's tweet.</p>

Elon Musk, who took over as the CEO of Twitter, has been making significant changes to the platform. The logo change is one of the most visible so far. In his tweet, Musk referred to this as an “interim” logo, indicating that Twitter users may see another logo change in the future. This move has sparked a lot of speculation and curiosity among users and stakeholders alike.

More than just a change in aesthetics, this logo switch could be a precursor to a more significant rebranding. Musk hinted that the changes won't stop with the logo. He stated that the company would “bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” This statement seems to suggest that the bird-themed branding, which is synonymous with Twitter, may soon be completely phased out.

The change has been met with varied reactions from Twitter users worldwide. Late Sunday, Musk updated his profile picture to the new Twitter logo, leading by example. To further cement the new branding, Twitter’s official account @Twitter has also changed its name and display picture to the new X logo. This move marks a significant shift in Twitter's branding and could signal a new direction for the platform under Musk's leadership.
