Shortly after Twitter implemented a series of policies that angered users, Twitter CEO Elon Musk made another shocking announcement.
The SpaceX founder has said he wants to remove the Twitter logo and “eventually” the birds that have long been its signature.
The billionaire first tweeted a shimmering picture of an X on his official Twitter handle and wrote: “If a cool X logo is posted tonight, we’ll be doing it live around the world tomorrow.”
He later tweeted, “Soon we will say goodbye to the Twitter brand and slowly to all the birds.”
Musk took over Twitter last year after paying $44 billion to its previous owner and merged the company into an entity called X Corp.
However, since Musk’s acquisition, users have expressed dissatisfaction with the platform and Musk’s policies.
Soon after taking control, he fired several Twitter employees. Shortly thereafter, he announced that Twitter’s verification checkmarks would be available to anyone paying a subscription fee.
Previously, they were free and only given to certain users the platform deemed “verified”.
Recently, Musk announced that he is limiting the number of tweets users can see per day.
