The billionaire entrepreneur also shared a captivating photo of Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters, showcasing the company’s fresh “X” logo illuminated on the building by rays of light.

Yaccarino’s and Musk’s Twitter handles now both feature the “X“ logo although the blue bird is still present across the social platform.

On Sunday night, Musk changed his profile picture to the company’s “interim X logo” a white X on a black background — after prompting his 149 million followers to share with him a “good enough X logo” earlier that morning.

“It should have been done a long time ago,” Musk said during a Twitter audio live stream early Sunday when asked why he was considering the shake-up. “Sorry, it took so long.”

The Tesla CEO went with a logo shared by Sawyer Merritt, with the creator sharing that the design was inspired by a similar logo made by Alex Tourville for the “now discontinued” X Pod.

Musk further stated that “X” is in coordination with his “everything app,” an instant messaging and payment service like WeChat which is the world’s fifth most popular social media app and the most used in Asia.

“It’s an exceptionally rare thing – in life or in business – that you get a second chance to make another big impression,” Yaccarino tweeted on Saturday with the big news of the logo change looming.

“Twitter made one massive impression and changed the way we communicate. Now, X will go further, transforming the global town square.”

Glamsquad recalls that Musk a in groundbreaking move acquired Twitter for a staggering $44 billion, and in March, the visionary billionaire further redefined the social media landscape by renaming the company to X Corporation.

This significant transformation follows his takeover of the platform in October 2022.
