After teasing about it for a while, Elon Musk has officially relaunched Twitter as the “X” app. This app has been hinted to hold a future as the “Everything App” where it will be capable of being the total package, it will have features of all the social media platforms combined like Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and more.
The platform will not only have social media features but will also act as a messaging platform, E-Commerce platform, a payment gateway and will be built on a decentralised blockchain in an attempt to make it more secure and resilient to censorship.
While the rebranding of Twitter to X is just a start, it is easy to predict there are going to be a lot of updates in the future which brings the features mentioned above.
What Is X According To CEO Of Twitter
Linda Yaccarnio, who was recently appointed as the CEO of Twitter after Musk stepped down, shared via her profile what she felt about the platform after it was rebranded to X.
Yaccarnio revealed how she was excited about what she calls the app of the future, claiming further how its major priority is to focus on “audio, video, messaging, payments/banking – creating a global marketplace for ideas, goods, services, and opportunities“.
It was also unveiled how the app has already been under development for the past 8 months and has been constantly testing through the rapid feature launches over those months.
Yaccarnio disclosed how the response from fans and critics has allowed them to have bigger dreams for Twitter and enabled them to innovate and fulfil their potential.|
As in a way to celebrate the launch of X, The everything app, both Musk and Yaccarino shared on their timelines images of the X logo being displayed on the main headquarters of Twitter.
What Does The Future Hold For X
Elon Musk recently went to war with Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the Meta group, which includes popular platforms like Facebook and Instagram under its name.
In an attempt to compete with Twitter, Zuckerberg recently released his version of the app, titled “Threads“, Threads was the quickest application by date to reach 1 million users, and had 70 million users signed up in the first few days.
However, the popularity of the newly launched Threads app plummeted in the coming weeks and now remains nowhere near close to the daily activity of users Twitter experience. This app war also bought us some golden moments, with Musk and Zuckerberg constantly trolling each other on their own platforms, and even bought us an opportunity to see a fight happen between the two in Italy’s Colosseum.
While it may be uncertain for now how the X app will perform in the upcoming weeks, it should be considered revolutionary how a single app is going to offer its users such a wide array of features for them to use.
