If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make it go live worldwide tomorrow

Musk posted an image of a blinking “X,” and later in a Twitter Spaces audio chat he responded “yes” when asked if the Twitter logo will change, adding that it “should have been done a long time ago.”
Under Musk’s tumultuous tenure since he bought Twitter in October, the company has changed its business name to X Corp, reflecting the billionaire’s vision of creating a “super app” like China’s WeChat.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Twitter’s website says its logo, which depicts a blue bird, is “our most recognizable asset.” “That’s why we protect it so much,” he adds.
The bird was temporarily replaced in April by Dogecoin’s Shiba Inu dog, helping to increase the market value of the meme coin.
The company came under widespread criticism from users and marketing professionals when Musk announced earlier this month that Twitter would limit the number of daily Tweets that can be read by multiple accounts.
The daily limits helped the growth of competing service Threads, owned by Meta, which surpassed 100 million registrations within five days of its launch.
