‘So, now that Twitter has been rebranded to X, what are tweets called now?’ a user asked. 

Elon Musk replied with three characters, ‘X’s’. 

After his announcement, the team at Twitter ushered in the new image pretty quickly. 

The X logo was projected onto the headquarters in San Francisco and Elon Musk was using his 149 million followers to fan the flames online. 

“Soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand, and, gradually, all the birds,” he said.

Users have since taken to the platform to tweet (X?) their thoughts. 

A Mark Zuckerberg parody account swooped in, joking he’d “see you all at Threads” and put forward a suggestion for the new X logo.

Naturally, a lot of people were asking the same question: “So if we are not going to ‘tweet’, what will we be doing?”. 

Suggestions ranged from practical to pretty outrageous. 

“I just sent an X, Did you read my X, Shh I’m Xing. Makes everything a lot easier actually,” one said.

Someone proposed calling it “X-crementing” while another said they’d probably just be “going outside to find something else to do”. 

Some meme accounts predicted the rebrand would be pretty damaging for the site. 

The powers that be at Twitter are holding firm, insisting the rebrand will be an exciting move for the company.

“Twitter made one massive impression and changed the way we communicate,” the company’s chief executive, Linda Yaccarino said.

“Now, X will go further, transforming the global town square.”

The rebrand to X follows in the footsteps of some of Musk’s other ventures including the X credit card, Tesla Model X and even his son, X Æ A-12.
