X.com Now Forwarding to Twitter

In 2017, Elon Musk acquired X.com from PayPal in a private transaction. The acquisition price for X.com, as far as I know, was never reported publicly by PayPal or Musk. For quite some time, X.com has been underutilized, with just a small text “x” appearing in the upper left corner of the landing age.

Earlier this year, Elon Musk acquired Twitter. He has been tweeting about creating a company called X with financial services and Twitter amongst its properties. Musk recently put Twitter under the X umbrella. The copyright on the bottom of the website says, “© 2023 X Corp.

Yesterday, Musk has been hinting that the Twitter brand and logo would be scrapped in favor of X and X branding. In a tweet within the past hour, Musk announced that X.com is now forwarding to the Twitter website:

It’s a curious move, since it would be more logical for branding purposes that Twitter forward to X.com. That may happen at some point. For now, X.com is forwarding to Twitter.com.

I am sure the world will be keeping an eye on Twitter and X.com, and we will soon see what comes of X.com and Twitter.

  1. “more logical for branding purposes that Twitter forward to X.com”
    Considering the new “threads” competition – forwarding Twitter to X would probably be welcome by threads – as it might give twitter users a reason to jump ship ?

  2. What a freaking waste of money!! he is more of a technical guy and not a word/political person and he should stick to running Tesla.
    $44billion down the drain.
    Twitter has only one function, just to tweet, whereas Meta has so many platforms….and so many functions

    Twitter will be gone like aol or myspace or bing…
