“The Twitter name made sense when it was just 140-character messages going back and forth. […] but now you can post almost anything,” explained the owner of the social network.
Elon Musk advertisement that future tweets will be called “x’s“. The magnate presented this Monday the new name and logo of his social network Twitter. The platform will replace its classic blue bird with an X and the domain will be X.com.
On the same day, the billionaire explained the reasons behind the big changes on the social platform. “Twitter was acquired by X Corp both to ensure free speech and to speed up X, the app of everything“, tweeted. “The Twitter name made sense when it was just 140-character messages that went back and forth like birds chirping, but now you can post almost anything, including hours of video,” she explained.
“In the coming months, we will add comprehensive communications and the ability to run your entire financial world. The Twitter name makes no sense in that context, so we have to say goodbye to the bird,” she concluded.
X is a designation that Musk has used repeatedly in the names of his companies and products for a long time. In October of last year, he announced that “buying Twitter is an accelerator to create X, the application for everything.”
