Is Twitter going to say goodbye to its iconic bird in baby blue logo? Elon Musk tweets a possible change

Twitter owner and CTO Elon Musk, in a cryptic tweet, Sunday hinted at a change in the micro-blogging site's logo, which is now one of a white bird in an iconic baby blue box.

"And soon we shall bid adieu to the twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds," Musk tweeted.

"If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we'll make go live worldwide tomorrow," he said in another tweet.

The first Twitter logo in 2005 was green but it was changed to its present iconic baby blue. The Twitter bird, known as Larry Bird, was first introduced in 2010 and then went through a few redesigns.  

Musk's remark comes as he promotes his new artificial intelligence company, xAI, which he claims will be to "understand the universe."

The Twitter owner recently announced the formation of xAI after accusing companies like OpenAI and Google of developing the technology without considering risks to humans.

Elon Musk, who is presently the owner and CTO of Twitter, started acquiring the American social media giant on April 14, 2022, and concluded it on Oct 27, 2022. Musk's X Corp. is the successor of Twitter, Inc.
