Twitter becomes X
Elon Musk has officially rebranded Twitter as X.
The change took place gradually over a 24-hour period beginning late one night when Musk tweeted: “And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” By early morning, the bird was gone and replaced with the X logo.
Big picture: Since Musk took over the company in October 2022, his mission has been two-fold: allow for freedom of speech & turn it into the “everything” platform.
📣 Free speech: Policy changes have made Twitter a safe space for discussing previously banned content like: vaccines and questioning the 2020 election results. And Musk’s release of The Twitter Files displayed his dedication to making public how the company previously worked with the Biden regime to censor American citizens.
🔄 ‘Everything’ platform: Musk has made massive changes to the platform, including a monthly paid subscription service, enhanced use of audio ‘Spaces’ and video for podcasts and shows [like Tucker on Twitter], the ability for users to generate profits through audience engagement, longer tweets, job listings for companies, and more.
25 years in the making: In 1999, Elon Musk co-founded X.com, with the intention of using the internet to revolutionize banking. This company merged with another company called Confinity and eventually became PayPal.
Musk has apparently been holding onto the X.com domain name all these years. And it’s rumored that financial transactions and banking will be part of the “everything” platform he intends to create – harkening back to the domain’s original purpose. We’ll see.
