In a series of tweets, Musk said: "If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow."

"And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds," he said.

Musk changed his own Twitter DP with the new 'X' logo.

Musk acquired the micro-blogging platform in October last year for $44 billion.

This is not the first time that the logo was changed since Musk became the owner of the platform.

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.  

Earlier this year, Musk had briefly changed the bird logo with a doge meme.
