Entry of the Interim X.Com Logo in Twitter
Chirps from birds will soon vanish from Twitter as the interim X logo is now going to rule the roost. Elon Musk’s buy back of http://X.com from ‘PayPal’ is akin to buying of Air India by Tata Group on January 27, 2022 as Tata Group too had sentimental values attached to the deal.
Elon Musk has stated that the buyback of X.com has great sentimental value to him. Twenty four years ago, Elon Musk and three others founded X.com. Mergers and acquisitions are not uncommon in any industry. However, over the period of time Elon Musk parted ways with X.com.
Presently, the companies of Elon Musk include SpaceX, Tesla, Twitter, Boring Company, Neuralink and X.com.
Since 2006, everybody was lending ears to the twittering sound of birds across the social media platforms. There was no whisper at all till now but with the introduction of X factor in twitter, the singing and chirping birds have set for a long sail in the realms of deep oblivion. The new interim X logo is now nestled in Twitter comfortably.
To understand the replacement of the twitter logo by the interim X logo, it will be worthwhile to look at the brief chronology of X.com.
In the year 1999, i.e. 24 years ago, X.com was founded by its founders Elon Musk, Harris Fricker, Christopher Payne & Ed Ho.
In 2000, X.com i.e. within an year of its inception, it got merged with ‘Confinity’ to form ‘PayPal’, a company that enabled customers to send money to each other using email and web.
In 2002, eBay bought PayPal.
In 2017, Musk repurchased the domain name X.com from PayPal. For Elon Musk acquisition of X.com is of great sentimental value which he has clearly stated.
In July 2017, X.com, with its blank white page with one "X" in the top left corner was launched again and now the same is creeping and crawling in the nestle of Twitter.
In October, 2022, Elon Musk stated that his acquisition of Twitter is "an accelerant to creating X, the everything app". He also stated that it will come with some improvements that will make Twitter, the most valuable financial institution in the world.
On July 22, 2023, Elon Musk disclosed about the rebranding of Twitter as social media platform called X.com.
New interim X logo has set sail to higher heights with the help of the shining plumage of Twittering avians who are bound to fly high, transcending the geographical boundaries with comfort and perfect ease. Everyone has set eyes on the forthcoming moves of X.com on the potent social media platform.
The buyback of X.com by Elon Musk will transform Twitter not just to the extent of replacing the logo but with the impactful use of the social media platform in a way which is not yet known to us. In the coming days, the things are going to be crystal clear to the users, who are keen to witness the transformation of the social media platform Twitter as X.com is now back in the fold of Elon Musk.
