Elon Musk's unyielding pursuit of constant changes to Twitter is sparking discontent among users, driving some away from the once-popular social media platform. As the eccentric billionaire continues to lead the charge, Twitter finds itself frequently in the news for its seemingly never-ending series of "innovations," which often meet with widespread backlash.
The recent introduction of the tweet view limit, a feature that proved exasperating for many, only served to further erode trust and fuel the search for alternative platforms. Despite the consequences, Musk remains undeterred in his mission to revolutionize Twitter, and his latest move involves a makeover of the platform's iconic logo, leaving users apprehensive about what further changes may lie ahead.
Twitter rebranded to 'X', bidding farewell to iconic bird logo
Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, made an announcement today that 'X'.com will now redirect to Twitter.com. Along with this move, he revealed plans to replace the iconic Twitter bird logo with an "interim 'X' logo." In the lead-up to this change, Musk extensively tweeted about it, building anticipation and speculation among users.
Currently, the new 'X' logo has replaced the Twitter bird on the desktop version, and a similar update is expected for the mobile app in the near future. However, the new logo hasn't received a warm welcome from users, with many expressing disappointment and viewing it as a deletion of Twitter's unique cultural identity rather than a simple rebranding. The reactions have raised questions about whether Musk will reconsider his decision in light of the negative feedback.
