On Twitter, Elon Musk frequently makes unexpected announcements, and this past weekend was no exception. The billionaire revealed that Twitter will soon change its name to X, the “everything app” he has been teasing for a while. Thus, the owner of Twitter urged its countless users to get ready to say goodbye to the recognizable Blue Bird icon that we have grown to connect with Twitter over the years.
Musk tweeted on Sunday morning, “And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” Now, there has already been a significant modification. According to Elon Musk, the website X.com links users to twitter. Additionally, he made a suggestion about the potential replacement for the Blue Bird logo.
On his profile, Elon Musk pinned a video that appears to be the new Twitter logo. He included the same logo as text in a subsequent tweet. In fact, typing X.com into your browser will direct you to Twitter.com. This raises the possibility that Musk will shortly switch Twitter’s domain to X.com. I suppose that only time will tell.

Why Elon Musk chose “X” for Twitter:
According to Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino, who is also discussing X on the platform, it is a “second chance to make yet another big impression.”
Linda formally announced X and everything the team aims to accomplish with the platform in a Twitter thread. It’s an extraordinarily unusual event – in life or in business – that you get a second chance to create another huge impression, she wrote, calling X a second chance to make another great impact. Twitter left a lasting impression and revolutionized communication. The worldwide town square will now undergo additional transformation thanks to X.
We have already seen X take shape in the past several months, Yaccarino said in another tweet. How? The CEO Elon Musk said that all of the new features and modifications that Twitter has been implementing are a result of its recent rebranding to X.
In the meantime, a court document filed in a California court on April 4 appeared to suggest that Twitter is no longer a separate legal company. The business had combined to form X Corp. “Twitter Inc. no longer exists after merging with X Corp. The paper stated, “X Corp. is a privately held corporation with its major place of business in San Francisco, California, and was incorporated in Nevada.
