As a black mark symbolizing something that was ruined, the X is appropriate.

Never use it but I always thought the name and the bird were annoying. In my business my teams opinions matter. Its his business he can rebrand it if it does not work for his vision.

The blue bird was more inviting looking. The X just sounds and looks ominous but then again, Twitter has become such a cesspool of negativity it's probably more fitting.

Elon for a long time has been envious of Chinese platform WeChat which is more than a messaging platform. You can buy, sell goods, mom and pop to major stores, Tavel, banking and you name whatever and WeChat does it.

I understand that he wants to change Twitter to WeChat type brand. and hence X new name. It will take many years and decades for that to happen.

Bluebird was cute and stylish.

Just another narcissistic appeal for attention.

Bleeding so much cash chose to (cleverly) crowd source the logo. Other companies need to follow suit and stop giving their cronies millions to design logos that a ten-year-old could have made in exchange for an ice cream.

It's Xtupid to be honest.
