From Twitter to X(witter)…

Honestly… Vulcan doesn’t know what is happening with Elon Musk, a supposedly smart rich nerd who bought Twitter for US$44 billion…

Logically, important things such as improving moderation, maintaining server infrastructure, and maximising users engagement on the platform should be highest priorities.

But, it looks like Elon had something different to do with the Blue Bird site…

Yeah, he decided to rebrand and change the name to X, just X and also killing the venerable Twitter name and its Blue Bird logo (to the chagrin of branding professional everywhere, lol).

Elon thought that rebranding the whole website is a genius thing that will retain users and prevent them from migrating to alternative social media platform such as Mastodon. Instead he got ridicules from the masses, Vulcan refuses to call it X and instead refers it as X(witter).

Also, installing a giant and brightly-lit X logo publicly isn’t a smart idea…
