It is official: Twitter is lifeless and X marks the spot of its burial.
Only a week in the past, Elon Musk introduced that Twitter would change its iconic emblem to an X. Then, Twitter truly did change the hen emblem with an X. Quickly, Twitter modified its social handles to @x and @xblue. For a second, X might solely be in darkish mode earlier than somebody determined that was silly and allowed for gentle mode, too. And, for a complete week, Apple’s App Retailer nonetheless listed the app underneath the identify Twitter as a substitute of X as a result of Apple apparently did not permit builders to call their apps only a single character. Now, that has come to an finish. The Apple App Retailer has allowed Twitter to alter its identify from Twitter to X.
Now, when you seek for “Twitter,” “X”, and even “Elon Musk” on the App Retailer, the primary non-sponsored app is X — previously generally known as Twitter. Its tag line is an embarrassing “Blaze your glory!” I have no idea what meaning.
Twitter.com nonetheless navigates you to the Twitter net web page, and X.com will redirect you to the Twitter net web page, too. The Android app retailer additionally rebranded the Twitter app to X. The app in your cellphone is not the hen and not has the Twitter identify — it is X, with the X emblem. And customers will not be thrilled.
