Experts have discovered a way to revert the social media platform previously known as Twitter back to its original form. Users can change the “X” to Twitter on their computer, Android, and iOS devices in just a few minutes and at no cost. The rebranding of the platform, known as the “X” brand, has caused a stir among global users. Many find it awkward and even similar to not-safe-for-work (NSFW) websites, leading them to avoid opening the site altogether. Fortunately, there are methods to restore the iconic blue bird that represents Twitter. This article will provide step-by-step instructions on changing the “X” to Twitter on different devices, but it is important to note the limitations of these methods.

On a computer, users can install the “X to Twitter” extension for browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox. This extension changes the social media icon specifically on the user’s computer, so others who do not have the extension will still see the “X” icon.

For iOS users, the process involves creating a shortcut using the original Twitter bird icon. Users will need to download the Twitter bird icon from Google Images and use the Shortcut app on their iPhone. By following a series of steps, users can replace the “X” with the Twitter bird icon as a shortcut on their home screen. However, it is important to note that while the icon will change, the platform’s brand will remain, and the “X” will still be visible while using the app.

Android users can also replace the “X” icon with the old Twitter bird icon by using the Shortcut Maker app. Similar to the iOS instructions, users will need to download a Twitter bird picture from Google Images and follow a series of steps to create a shortcut on their home screen with the Twitter bird icon.

While these methods provide a way to change the “X” to Twitter, it is important to exercise caution and only use trusted apps. Some alternative options for changing the social media icon may pose risks to online information and privacy. Users should thoroughly review app terms, conditions, and reviews before proceeding.

Overall, these methods offer a solution for those who dislike the Twitter rebranding and wish to restore the original Twitter bird icon.
