Twitter is finally dead. It’s X all the way

Like a venomous caterpillar emerging from its hard cocoon, Social network formerly known as Twitter has completely transformed into

Many different elements of Twitter have accept the rebrandingand the company was use link from early April But now the domain has completely changed, marking the end of a tumultuous transition period—and erasing the last vestiges of the bird app.

“We’re letting you know that we’re changing our URL, but your privacy and data protection settings remain the same,” a message at the bottom of the X login and home page reads.

The transition has been a long time coming. Musk announced moved from Twitter to X last July. But the billionaire has cherished the dream of creating an “everything app” by that name for decades, and Twitter is his guiding principle.

“The name Twitter made sense when it was just 140-character messages going back and forth – like a bird chirping – but now you can post almost anything, including several hours of video,” Musk Written on the newly renamed X last summer. “In the coming months, we will add comprehensive communications and the ability to run your entire financial world. The name Twitter makes no sense in that context, so we have to say goodbye to the bird.”

Twitter under Musk has actually added voice and video calls to its feature list. It has also re-grounded conspiracy theorists such as Alex JonesNurture one Welcoming environment for porn Spam accounts, absolutely done hash out verificationintroduced a monetization system that encourages sprawl integrated agriculturegut it Trusted and safe teamallow one Hate speech increased on the platform, NPR designated is “US state media,” News headlines have been removed completely and then reintroduced them in an odd location, eliminating a bunch of funny bots and third-party apps by introducing API changes are extremely expensive while giving Verify blue check to my AI-generated friend, revolve around videointroduced an AI model that will help you commit a crime and monitor According to app analytics firm SensorTower, usage has dropped more than 20% in the US.

The “entire financial world” part is still a work in progress.

A sentimental person maybe Mourning the death of Twitter, for all its faults, always has the potential to delight and surprise. But remember that this transition is inevitable. Musk first owned in 1999, when he co-founded an online bank by that name; it would eventually merge with a competitor and become PayPal. He acquired from PayPal in 2017, tweeting that it has “great sentimental value.” And he has been eyeing Twitter as a means to create X on Earth since before the acquisition was completed, according to Musk biographer Walter Isaacson.

“In the days leading up to the Twitter takeover in late October 2022, Musk’s mood fluctuated wildly,” Isaacson wrote in Elon Musk. “He said he would make it the hybrid of the financial and social networking platform he envisioned 24 years ago for, adding that he planned to rebrand it was by the name he loved.”

To put it in even better perspective, Musk’s tweet Today announced that “all core systems are now available on” bearing the logo of the company he founded 25 years ago.

While X may never become the everything app of Musk’s dreams, it is undeniably and indelibly a different place than the one he bought it to be. This in some ways makes this final transition more bearable. Whatever Elon Musk’s platform becomes, it certainly won’t be Twitter. Call it whatever you want.
