PROGRES.ID– Surprising news comes from SpaceX and Tesla founder, Elon Musk, who announced his intention to change Twitter’s logo. Through a tweet he posted at 00:06 local time on Sunday (23/7), the billionaire stated that not only will Twitter’s brand be changed, but also gradually all the bird images.
Shortly after, Musk shared a blinking “X” image, but without further explanation. This has undoubtedly piqued the curiosity of social media users, especially Twitter users, about what Musk and his team are preparing.
Since Musk acquired Twitter last October, the social media platform has undergone many changes. Its business name was changed to X Corp, reflecting Musk’s ambition to create a “super app” similar to WeChat in China. This change certainly caused a sensation in the world of social media and business.
The Twitter logo, which depicts a blue bird, has become an incredibly recognizable asset and is closely identified with the company itself. On the Twitter website, they emphasize the importance of the logo and how they highly protect it.
However, back in April, Twitter temporarily replaced the blue bird logo with the image of a Shiba Inu dog, which is the logo of the popular cryptocurrency, Dogecoin. This temporary change even managed to increase Dogecoin’s market value by $4 billion. It shows how powerful a logo can be in driving user interest and attention.
Regarding the news of the logo change, the company Twitter has not yet provided an official response. However, Twitter users and social media observers are now eagerly awaiting further developments on this interesting news.
Apart from the logo change news, Twitter is also facing legal issues recently. They have been sued for allegedly owing more than $500 million as severance pay for former employees. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday.
To address these various issues, Musk’s company has fired more than half of its employees to cut costs. All of these steps clearly reflect Elon Musk’s grand ambitions in managing this social media platform.
We are all eagerly waiting to see how this logo change will bring Twitter into a new and exciting era. Musk has proven himself as an innovator, and undoubtedly, he has big plans for Twitter. Goodbye, blue bird logo, and welcome to the new era of Twitter under Elon Musk’s leadership!(**)
