Twitter became X months ago, but now Twitter.com is also officially X.com.

The URL change cements Elon Musk's rebranding of the social media app since his takeover. In July of last year, Twitter officially shed its iconic bird logo and its name, with X replacing it all.

Now, anyone typing the original Twitter URL will be redirected to X.com. The platform announced the change with a pop-up on its browser today.

A message on the login page read, "We are letting you know that we are changing our URL, but your privacy and data protection settings remain the same."

Musk also announced the change on his own X account, writing, "All core systems are now on X.com."

This is just the latest change in a fleet of updates with Musk at the helm: subscription fees have been implemented (at times, randomly), blue ticks were replaced and given back, the shift to "X" has resulted in broken URLs and arguably, there's just a general sense of chaos on the app.
