Under the tumultuous rule of Musk since he bought Twitter in Octoberthe company has changed its trade name to X Corp, reflecting the vision of the billionaire to create a “super app” like the Chinese WeChat.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

the website of Twitter says your logo, which represents a blue bird, is “our most recognizable asset”. “That’s why we protect it so much,” he adds.
