We discuss Twitter’s new makeover to x.com, what we will be calling tweets now, what will followers be called now, how users are feeling about the changes, what Twitter Blue will be called, and more goodies worth the read.
Why Did Twitter Change its Branding to X.com?
Elon Musk has stated that Twitter was an extension of X Corp as it was a purchase for it and to preserve freedom of speech on the platform.
Here is what he had to say.
Twitter was acquired by X Corp both to ensure freedom of speech and as an accelerant for X, the everything app. This is not simply a company renaming itself, but doing the same thing. The Twitter name made sense when it was just 140 character messages going back and forth – like birds tweeting – but now you can post almost anything, including several hours of video. In the months to come, we will add comprehensive communications and the ability to conduct your entire financial world. The Twitter name does not make sense in that context, so we must bid adieu to the bird.Elon Musk
Why did the hashtag #GoodbyeTwitter go viral? Partly because of Elon.
Goodbye, “Twitter” We will never forget you
You have a lot to live up to.Elon Musk Aoc
Is The Twitter Logo Professional?
To be frank the logo looks very minimalistic like someone purchased it from Fiverr. I like it but don’t love it personally. I wasn’t on board with the switch.
What Are People Saying About The New Logo Change?
My mind is blown that this happened over a weekend with a logo from a user. Doesn’t this corporate rebrand stuff usually involve paying expensive consultants a few million dollars to make nice strategy decks?Peter Yang

What Will Tweets Be Called?
This is still up for debate. I have seen them try to talk about pronouns, Elon has made a word play by saying Xeeting for like cheating. But it’s in the air. Here are some tweets about it.

What Will Followers Be Called?
