After Elon Musk announced the change over the weekend, Twitter has now removed the iconic bird logo and adopted the ‘X’ as its official logo. The website has now been updated with the change.
Once the apps are updated, the X logo will also probably take the place of the bird logo in the mobile versions. Musk asked for users to submit logos, saying that“if a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow.” He then replaced the design on Twitter and then changed his own profile picture to the new X logo and pinned a post with a video made by Sawyer Merritt, a Twitter user.
Musk tweeted that x.com is now also redirected to twitter.com. Musk also described this design as “interim” in the post, so a future logo update may be in order.
Twitter might not simply end with the logo change. According to Musk, the company would eventually “bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” The change was apparently announced to Twitter staff through an email that concluded with the statement that it would be the last Musk email to come from the Twitter.com domain, according to The Verge.
Musk posted a picture of Twitter’s headquarters with the X branding flashing across it early on Monday.

X is the future state of unlimited interactivity – centered in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking – creating a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities. Powered by AI, X will connect us all in ways we’re just beginning to imagine.— Linda Yaccarino (@lindayacc) July 23, 2023
