But it’s ELON

He did no due diligence prior to buying Tweeter, so why expect him do so to change the name.

Seems like Elon is trying to torch his 44B. I guess it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.

I am pretty sure the change from the bird to the X will result in nothing changing.

I dunno…since Meta has intellectual property rights, Zuckerberg might up the ante on their cage match.

Ill never understand when companies torch a brand and logo in use for many years. But elon is smarter than me so i dont have to understand.

It is a fucking X!!
Nobody gives a shit!

When you want to be a prick to a prick, it might.
