Elon Musk has been transforming Twitter into ‘X’ for a few weeks now, an application that he believes should become an ‘everything app’.
Initially, Elon Musk changed the social media site’s logo from a blue bird to a white “X” on a black background. Twitter’s name and branding had to make way, both at its headquarters in San Francisco, and from the web and apps in various app stores. This seems to have worked quite well in most places. Now the internet part in particular is being ‘cleaned up’ further.
It is also the intention that the well-known ‘twitter.com’ will eventually disappear and make way for a website that will be called ‘x.com’. At the moment, this is not yet the case: those who navigate to the social medium via a browser still visit ‘twitter.com‘. That is a thorn in the side of Musk, who has already had the reference to the blue bird removed in several places. For example, Tweetdeck is now called ‘XPro’. The subscription formula formerly known as ‘Twitter Blue’ is now ‘X Premium’, and so on.
The only thing that isn’t “X” yet is “twitter.com.” That, too, could soon change in the coming weeks. Jay Peters of The Verge noticed a shift when he wanted to share posts on X via his iPhone: links created in the app invariably refer to ‘x.com’. Do you paste such a link in your browser? Then the URL will still be changed to the old ‘twitter.com’.
Twitter now officially has @X as its handle
It is a spread in which the new brand undoubtedly does not want to remain in for too long. It is therefore expected that the URL of the web page will soon be converted to ‘x.com’.
