If you’ve looked at the app logo for X, formerly Twitter, on your phone recently, you may have thought your screen was dirty. I know I did, but after trying to clean my screen more times than I’d like to admit, it appears thats just how the new app tile looks. Unkempt and unwell.
The new logo is just one of a handful of new changes, like the Subscription program and the new verification system, Elon Musk has brought to the platform since purchasing it in 2022. And this isn’t the first time the app logo has changed since the purchase.
On July 23, Musk posted on the platform that Twitter’s bird logo would soon vanish.
The bird logo was replaced with a simple white ‘X’ from the font Special Alphabets 4 on a black background. And now it appears the black background of the logo has some white streaks in it, which resemble smudges on your device’s screen at best.

It’s unclear if this will be the permanent app logo, or if it will change again in a few weeks.
X didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
