    Elon Musk wants you to call a tweet an 'x' as Twitter rebrands

    Twitter has started rebranding the “X” app that owner Elon Musk has been talking about for a long time. As part of the rebrand, the iconic blue bird was replaced with a black logo of the letter X.

    “X is the future state of limitless interactivity – centered in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking – creating a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services and opportunities. He wrote, “Powered by AI, X will connect us all in ways we have only begun to imagine.”

    Twitter very quietly unveiled its new image at its San Francisco headquarters at midnight, introducing the new X logo.
