Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit. - Alcuin of York, 798 A.D.

Translated:

And those people should not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness.
 
You may find some people to substitute 'X' for 'twitter'. Hmm... still gonna be a bit of a struggle.

But what is the equivalent translation of 'a tweet'....?

A 'Xeet' ?

:giggle:

A post.

Like Elon explained on the previously linked podcast with Lex - it's a bit silly to call for example a 3 hour video on X a "tweet".
140 characters on day one was a short tweet yes, but X has for a long time moved far away from the restricted posts aka tweets, so the name didn't fit the app anymore as it evolved.

Right well there we have it. A tweet shall henceforth be known as a post on twitter, before it changed its name.

Renaming twitter to X and changing "tweet" to "a post on X" is kinda like if Ziploc renamed their company "G" and told people to call it "plastic bag with seal" from now on.

Marketing genius.

Sounds like something Musk made up after the fact to a justify a really bad marketing decision just because he thinks it's cool to call something "x".

Brandwise it makes sense. Makes it easier to align it with his xcorp stuff like SpaceX and X.AI. he probably read a branding book amd the X idea stuck with him. i am still gonna use the words like twitter and tweets though. Hoping he launches XCOM too after spaceX is multiplanetary
