Hey guys,

If you’re a regular Twitter user, you’ve probably spotted a new “?” logo replacing the familiar blue bird that’s become synonymous with Twitter over the years. This significant rebranding, spearheaded by Elon Musk, was announced yesterday and has since garnered considerable attention.

In Musk’s own words, “Soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds.” The transition is apparent, but it’s not an overnight shift – the trusty blue bird still peeks out from various places, including as the website’s favicon and within the mobile apps.

Furthermore, the X branding is not confined to Twitter itself. You can now type in www.x.com in your browser, and voila! You’re led straight to Twitter. This intriguing development hints at an expansive future plan by X Corp, promising a multitude of innovations.

But that’s not all. Twitter is tightening its grip on user activity too. Previously, it was possible to view tweets without having a Twitter account – you could stay anonymous and still enjoy the platform’s content. However, that’s no longer the case. If you’re not logged into your Twitter account and try to view a tweet, you’ll be presented with a sign-in screen. If you don’t have an account? Well, you’re out of luck. The era of anonymous reading on Twitter seems to be drawing to a close.

These changes on Twitter might seem overwhelming but don’t worry. Remember, the digital world is fluid and ever-changing. As users, we need to adapt to enjoy the full benefits of these platforms. Stay updated and informed to safely navigate the shifting tides of the digital world. If you have any queries or concerns about these changes, our privacy care team is here to help!
