Twitter owner Elon Musk on Sunday took to the micro-blogging application and announced that he is changing the Twitter logo. The Tesla CEO also shared the design of the new Twitter logo on its social media platform and named it ‘X’.
“And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds. If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow”, Elon Musk tweeted.
“If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow," he added. According to reports, Twitter is now part of a new company called X Corp after a merger. Elon Musk hinted at this by posting ‘X’ on his Twitter account. Elon Musk is promoting his AI company, xAI, which he said will “understand the universe."
Meanwhile, Twitter is also imposing daily limits on how many direct messages unverified accounts can send. The platform said the changes will take effect on Friday and will affect users who don’t have a verified badge or a Twitter Blue subscription.
The company did not reveal what the exact DM limit will be but suggested that users who want to send unlimited DMs will have to sign up for Twitter Blue, its paid service that costs Rs 900 per month in India and offers various features and perks.
Also, Elon Musk recently requested Twitter users to become verified subscribers, saying that they can earn thousands of dollars per month in ad revenue sharing.
Without explaining how they can do this without registering 5 million impressions per month with having more than 10,000 followers — the two key conditions in order to make money via ad revenue sharing on Twitter — he asked them to join Twitter Blue paid subscription.
