In a significant development, the social media platform ‘X’, previously known as Twitter, has undergone a major transformation. The change was confirmed by Elon Musk, the owner of the platform. The URL of the platform has been changed, marking the end of the use of the old Twitter.com URL. Now, when users open the social media platform on their web version, they will be directed to the x.com page.

Elon Musk’s social media platform ‘X’ has made this change to its URL. It’s worth noting that Musk had renamed Twitter to ‘X’, but despite this, the company had continued to use the old twitter.com URL. Now, Musk has confirmed that the twitter.com URL has been transferred to x.com.

When users of ‘X’ open the social media platform on their web version, they will now see the x.com page. It’s important to mention that Elon Musk acquired Twitter on April 14, 2022, and changed its name to ‘X’ on July 23, 2023.

However, the platform had continued to use the twitter.com URL, which was announced to be changed to x.com this year. ‘X’ has informed its users in a post that they have changed their URL, but this will not affect their privacy and data security settings.

Elon Musk wants to make ‘X’ a super app. The concept of a super app is that it offers multiple services within a single app. Services such as social media, payment service, ticket booking service, gaming service, and other utility-based services will all be available within the same app.

It’s worth mentioning that Elon Musk bought Twitter last year in October for 44 billion dollars, which was a big deal. Musk had started making changes to Twitter.inc from the very first day. This included removing the free blue tick provided by Twitter. In addition, Musk started the blue subscription service.
