The latest social media news said Twitter owner Elon Musk released a statement about the Twitter bird logo. He said he needs to throw away the Twitter bird logo and replace the logo with an “X” sign. Meanwhile, Musk has a long history of releasing statements that were not serious, pivotal, or even failed to happen.
Musk has modified the name of the business to X Corporation. He said the change should have been made a long time ago and that happened now. Multiple reports have indicated that the billionaire needs to develop a “Super App” called the “X”. It is much similar to the WeChat of China.
On Sunday, Musk said that he was observing a modifying Twitter’s logo. He tweeted that he will bid goodbye to the Twitter brand soon and gradually all the birds. He later indicated that a temporary logo will go live later the same day. Musk also posted a twinkling image of “X” on Twitter.
An Honor to Boston Celtics Legend Larry Bird
Musk was asked if the Twitter logo will be modified, and he replied Yes later in a Twitter Spaces audio chat. He also added that it should have been done earlier. The chief executive of the company, Linda Yaccarino, also went on Twitter. She said the renovation was an attractive new opportunity for Twitter users.
Yaccarino said Twitter has made one major influence and modified the way of communication. Now, X will go supplementary with reconstructing the global town square. In 2011, the co-founder of Twitter, Biz Stone, said the bird is called Larry. It was an honor to Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird (a basketball star).
Super-apps have been a crucial part of everyday lives for the past couple of years for some people in Asia. Some of these apps include GoJek of Indonesia and PayTM of India. Social media marketing platforms said these apps enable users to pay for services over a finance system.
Chinese Social Media Platform WeChat
Meanwhile, WeChat is a social media platform for messaging. It has developed into one of the massive apps in the region in terms of its number of users and excellent services. The latest social media news said the app was projected to have around 1.29 billion users in China.
Keep in mind that Musk acquired Twitter in October and has now transformed its business name to X Corp. Twitter’s website said its logo portraying a blue-bird was the most observable blessing. This is the main reason so the platform is more defensive of it.
The platform instantly renewed the logo in April with Dogecoin’s Shiba Inu dog. This logo offered significant support to thrive a stream in the meme market value of the coin. Musk was later blamed for insider trading by a group of Dogecoin investors. He alleged that he had gained from overstating the value of Dogecoin.
Payment of $500M to Former Twitter Employees
However, marketers and users also condemned the company after the announcement from Musk earlier this month. Musk announced that there was a limitation on how many tweets can be read from different account holders. These daily limits had at least 100 million sign-ups in just 5 days of launch.
On Tuesday, the most recent complication from Twitter’s filing of a lawsuit. The dispute alleged the firm incurs more than $500 million in detachment pay to its former employees. The platform has out of a work at least half its workforce since Musk acquired the company.
Justin Urquhart Stewart (a business commentator) said the loyal but aging base of Twitter will not appreciate the modifications. Social media platforms said the younger generations have stirred onto other apps but Twitter is considered significantly old-fashioned.
People Beginning from Scratch with Original Brand
Stewart said Musk is seemingly more careful as people are almost beginning from scratch with an older audience and destroying the original brand. The social media platforms said the very swift rebranding of Twitter has also generated various security issues.
A global cyber adviser at security firm ESET, Jake Moore, issued a statement. He said the evolution from one company name to another can motivate exploiting. Criminals will use it to spoof firms or people to steal the data of users. A rebrand is an excellent opportunity to send exploiting emails asking users to sign in with a new URL from a link.
The fake link attached to the email enables people to trick others into giving their original Twitter certificate without their normal caution level. However, cyber-criminals can easily chase this, particularly those finding that new URL.
The Fixation of X
Musk has long had an obsession with the letter X; however, anyone really doesn’t know. Meanwhile, X.com was one of his first business activities and an online banking platform in 1999. The latest technology trends said Musk gained at least $165 million after 3 years after merging X.com with PayPal.
Musk also owns the X.com domain name and is now redirecting to Twitter. The chief executive of SpaceX was established in 2002 as the commercial American aerospace company. He also recently launched his anticipated artificial intelligence start-up “xAI”, in a bid to develop a substitute for ChatGPT.
