Musk introduces new ‘X’ logo for Twitter platform

Elon Musk revealed a new logo for Twitter, showcasing a white “X” set against a black backdrop as a replacement for the well-known blue bird symbol.

Late on Sunday, the newly designed logo also adorned the exterior of the company’s San Francisco offices.

Both Musk’s and Twitter Chief Executive Officer Linda Yaccarino’s Twitter handles now sport the “X” logo, though the iconic Twitter blue bird remains visible throughout the platform.

In a Sunday post, Musk expressed his intention to change Twitter’s logo and sought the opinion of his millions of followers on whether they would prefer a shift in the site’s color scheme from blue to black.

Since taking over Twitter in October, Musk has overseen significant changes, including renaming the company to X Corp. This move aligns with the billionaire’s vision of creating a “super app” akin to China’s WeChat.
