Elon Musk unveiled a new Twitter logo, opting for a “minimalist art deco” X as part of a platform revamp. As the owner of Twitter noted in a tweet, the design “probably changes later, certainly will be refined.” Linda Yaccarino, the CEO of Twitter, announced the decision on Monday by tweeting the image and stating, “X is here! Let’s proceed.
Musk asked his 149 million followers for logo suggestions, and it appears that he has settled on the one he identified on Sunday through a flickering video pinned to the top of his Twitter feed.
Musk has long been fixated on the “X” logo, which also serves as the name of the “everything app” he has promised to release, most likely through Twitter. Musk referred to Twitter shortly before purchasing it in October as “an accelerant to creating X, the everything app.”

WeChat, a Chinese software that lets users do anything from message to call a taxi to pay bills, is the inspiration for the X concept. Musk allegedly said to Twitter employees in June 2017: “You basically live on WeChat in China. We’ll be really successful if we can do that on Twitter.

In a tweet on Sunday, Yaccarino provided some information about how she anticipates X to operate, stating that it will be driven by artificial intelligence and “centered in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking.” Even though the official Twitter account has been switched to the new X logo as of Monday morning, the Twitter app itself still featured its distinctive bluebird logo.
