Twitter as X: There is a big story behind it-

As you know that the logo of “twitter” has been changed to “X”, it was informed by Elon musk by tweeting, in which Elon shared a photo of his Headquarters, in which the “X” logo is on a wall. was displayed by the projector.

However, people thought it was a joke because once Elon had put the logo of “Doge coin” in place of the logo of “twitter”, but this time Elon was serious.

Then on July 23, 2023, it was announced that “X.com” would now display “twitter.com” and twitter became “X”.

What Was The Reaction of The Public?

When the public saw that “Elon musk” was really doing this, people made fun of it and started tweeting what kind of name is this, people linked the name of Twitter to a pornographic website with the new name. Started saying that its name is very childish and Elon Musk will drown Twitter. But you would not know that how the name “X” came into being? And there is a very long story behind it.

History of The Name “X”

“X” company was Elon Musk’s company which had to make banking facilities easier. Its full name was x.com, which was founded on 7 December 1999 by Elon Musk in Palo Alto, California. X.com is a domain that was linked to Elon Musk’s startup company “PayPal” in 2000.

However, on October 3, 2002, “eBay” bought PayPal for US $ 1.5 billion. In 2015, PayPal was separated from X.com and PayPal became an independent company paypal.com.

Then on July 5, 2017, Musk re-bought X.com from Paypal, the reason behind this he told that this name is associated with my feelings. If it is seen like this, then this thing is also true because Alon Musk has named his company spaceX, in which X is shown in capital letters in the last and the logo is also shown with X.

X.com was relaunched on July 14, 2017, although the website contained nothing but a blank page. On October 4, 2022, Elon Musk argued for X.com to buy Twitter as well as create an application called “X, the Everything”. So he believed that with some improvements, Twitter would become the most valuable company on Earth under the name “X”.

Twitter became X.com

On 22 July 2023, Elon musk rebranded the commercially recognized social networking app Twitter to x.com. So that if you type x.com on the Internet, it redirects you to twitter.com. Elon not only changed the logo of Twitter but also changed his profile.

Elon has only one purpose behind all these things that every kind of facility can be found in only one place like “WeChat” which is an application of China which Elon Musk likes very much where all the facilities are available in one place. They want to do masks in the same way, they will connect the rest of their companies from Tesla, SpaceX, Neural ink, The Boring Company to Starlink with X.com, so that we will get all kinds of facilities in one place only.

What would you call Twitter now? Tweet or Xweet?

Till today, Twitter was called tweet, but now what will it be called Xweet, although this name is being displayed to the users, in such a situation, people have started suggesting many types of names and have also started using its hashtag.

So do you like the name X, everyone is looking for the answer to this question.
