Elon Musk rebrands Twitter to 'X'. Here's why
There might be several legal hurdles for Billionaire Elon Musk's decision to rebrand Twitter as X as companies including Meta and Microsoft already have intellectual property rights to the same letter.

Billionaire Elon Musk took to Twitter, the micro-blogging platform he owns, to announce that he is changing the iconic Twitter bird logo. The Tesla CEO also shared the design of the new Twitter logo on its social media platform and named it 'X'.

"Now, now points to," Musk tweeted.

The identity change is a precursor to even bigger changes on the platform. Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino clearly states that the platform "X" will be "centered in audio, video, messaging, payments/banking – creating a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities."
