Quite wild that Elon Musk is trying to do, for real, what conspiracy theorists consider the New World Order to be doing. A global app in which all payments and information is stored, as well as the self-driving electric cars and… oh yes, a chip in your brain.

No surprise, the logo is an overly serious, masculine edifice. A logo for an aftershave called ‘No’. It looks like a band-aid placed the wrong way over a cut. It says denial, rejection, error, stop, close, cancel. If this succeeds, everyone employed in the field of corporate branding should wonder if their job has any purpose at all.

Aha, now I see why he's doing it.

Anyway, Twitter has not yet been rebranded.

People will be X'ing instead of tweeting. Instead of reading tweets people will be reading X's.

That just sounds ugly. The brand and image of twitter has been one of the few things except inertia keeping the service popular and this is only going to accelerate its demise.

Wonder what her deal is. Musk is still very much the extremely public leader of the company, meanwhile Yaccarino has next to zero public presence despite being the nominal CEO of the company.

Rebranding has happened. The bird is dead.

Rebranding is easy, actually making technical changes to the site is hard. This lag heavily suggests to me that Musk is just flying by the seat of his pants rather than making changes in a planned, controlled way. Must be rough being a technical worker at twitter, every day is a new challenge of trying to keep up with Musk's half-baked, product-breaking ideas.

I think that's obvious. Usually when well known brands decide to rebrand, they have a long period of consultancy and planning and a heavy PR and marketing campaign to make sure everybody knows about it. They do not just issue a Tweet the day before saying "if we've got a good enough logo by tomorrow, we'll rebrand".

well yeah, and the technical issues with such a thing, like moving domains, are staged to roll out at the same time as the announcement.

Where did the new logo come from? Was it from an external contributor - if so I hope they've cleared the rights.

Sales.

She can speak to all the heads of all the advertising agencies etc. How long they will keep answering her calls is another question.

It's Unicode Character ��

No idea about the rights of using this, but it's almost certainly not able to be trademarked.

Real brain genius stuff to make a recognizable brand into something so generic it will probably make search engine optimization impossible, all while using a symbol that can't be registered as a trademark.

They should have called it "Decussate". In a strange coincidence, the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe podcast had that as their Word of the Week, and it was recorded days before the announcement. It means "something in the shape of an 'X'".

The X character looks like an exact match:

https://catalog.monotype.com/font/mo...al-alphabets/4

A Twitter account that focuses of fonts is discussing it, can't view the entire thread without logging in because Musk removed that functionality.

https://twitter.com/fontendou/status...07528405901312

Edit: Elon posted the single monotype character 11hrs ago, so it's pretty obvious that he is at least aware that it's an existing font.

My first site visit today (already logged in) still showed the bird logo. When I did a refresh, the X came up.

Well, I've seen my first crypto scam post by a blue check account impersonating the "X" brand, so I guess that means the name change is officially inagurated!

So give it until Friday and he'll be suing the type foundry for breach of his copyright and trademark!

Just for fun, I decided to report the tweet. It was actually quite difficult to select a category that properly included fraud.
