This week, both Google Play and Apple’s App Store released updated versions of the Twitter app for Android and iOS users, respectively. This means that users on both platforms can now enjoy the latest features and improvements that the updated app brings.

The most recent version of the Twitter app features the ‘X’ logo, and in certain instances, it may also display Twitter’s new name. This update introduces a fresh visual identity and branding for the app, reflecting the company’s ongoing efforts to evolve its image and user experience.

As observed by GizChina, the Google Play store page for the Android app now displays the name ‘X’ instead of Twitter.

X App Name is Now Approved on the Apple App Store

Two days later, Apple finally approved the new Twitter name which is ‘X’ on the App store. This means X is the first app to have a single letter name on the Apple App Store.

Apart from the few challenges of this name on the App Store, X has also undergone similar challenges in other industries. A notable example is when the website “” was blocked in regions like Indonesia. This happened because it was mistaken for an adult content website.

The app and its website are now operational in Indonesia and the Apple App Store at the moment.
