The study, conducted by OnlineCasinos365, analyzed Google Trends data from 23rd July 2023 to establish a rise in online search interest in the term ‘X.com’.
The recent launch of Threads, Twitter’s new rival which boasts more than 100 million users and is owned by nonother than Mark Zuckerberg, is a harsh blow to overcome for Twitter, and Musk has responded by rebranding Twitter as ‘X’.
The billionaire plans to change Twitter’s iconic bird logo to an understated ‘X’. This comes after news that Musk planned to create a social media app that incorporates everything from online shopping to banking services. ‘X’ also recalls the entrepreneur’s earlier career, with plans to create an online banking app under the same name, and his recent accomplishment with the renowned SpaceX.
Ionut Marin from OnlineCasinos365 has commented on the subject: “Thanks to his many innovations and controversies, Elon Musk has become a household name in recent years. So, it’s unsurprising to see online searches for ‘X.com’ have surged by 102% mere hours after the billionaire announces its arrival.
“Twitter’s rebrand is mysterious and futuristic, ultimately conforming to the image the world has come to associate with Elon Musk. The new dual-tone logo will also complement his other company, SpaceX. However, only time will tell if this launch will be enough to save the social media app from the arrival of Twitter’s rival, Threads.”
