Are Your Social Icons Still Twitter?
For those who have integrated Twitter’s social icons into their websites and digital presence, it’s important to be proactive about the changes brought about by this rebranding. The familiar Twitter logo and branding elements that have been a part of your online landscape now need to be replaced with the new “X” logo. This change goes beyond just aesthetics; it signifies a shift in the platform’s direction, and updating your icons is essential to ensure that your website aligns with the updated branding.
Interestingly, the transition from Twitter to X was accompanied by a major announcement from Elon Musk, one of the most influential figures in the tech industry. On July 24th, Musk publicly disclosed that his company, X Corp, had acquired Twitter. This acquisition has triggered a flurry of speculation and discussions about the potential synergies between X Corp and the former Twitter, now known as X. The acquisition has also raised questions about the changes that users and businesses can expect as the platform evolves under its new leadership.
What’s Else is In Store For X (Formerly Twitter)?
Elon Musk has been busy chatting with people who use the app. Here are some of his latest plans for the new social media platform as of now.
Changes to Ad Money
Twitter is a place where people can share pictures and messages. Recently, Twitter started a new thing where people who share cool stuff can get money from ads. But not everyone could join in, which made some people sad. So, Elon Musk changed the rules to make it better.
New Rules for More People
One person had a Twitter account all about their cute doggy. They couldn’t join in to get money from ads because of the rules. Elon Musk said, “Forget those rules, they’re gone now!”
Talking and Sharing More
Here’s how it works: People who talk and share a lot on Twitter can get some money from ads. But there were rules about how much they could talk, and some people weren’t happy. So, Elon Musk said, “Okay, you can talk more and get more money!”
Real People Only
Elon Musk also said that only certain people who are real can get money from ads. This is to stop tricky robot accounts from cheating.
More Money for More Views
Elon Musk even said that soon, people who get lots of views on their pages can earn even more money. But these views need to come from real people, not robots.
Twitter vs. Threads
All of this is happening because Twitter wants to be as good as another app called Threads. Threads is like Twitter but a bit different, and many people use it. But Threads doesn’t show ads, which makes Twitter special.
Elon Musk Cares
Elon Musk wants people who like to share things on Twitter to be happy and keep using it. So, he’s making sure they get rewarded for sharing and chatting with others.
