Return the birdie icon to Twitter with this extension

We must admit it: Elon Musk is proving not to be entirely right in the head. It’s either that, or he’s doing so well that he’s ahead of the rest of humanity. Everything can be, that for a reason he is the richest man in the world. However, what he is doing in recent days with Twitter transits between the dramatic and the grotesque. Indeed, we are talking about the infamous X that continues and will continue to be talked about for a long time.

It all seems like a bad joke, because yes, Twitter is no longer Twitter, it’s X and in the future Musk hopes to make the platform much more ambitious than it is currently, but the truth is that the change has been so unexpected and makes so little sense at the moment -except for the main logo of the site, everything is remains as it was, riddled with references to Twitter and with the redirect from to twitter.comand not the other way around – that confusion still reigns between locals and strangers.

The bewilderment and the whining, if not the anger, is that the X, most likely to Musk’s joy, one trending topic recurring in recent days and not for good. In other words, there are those who do not like change, but take it with humor, and those who directly and constantly lie to the billionaire with unflattering wishes. In a way, it’s understandable: that X is reminiscent of anything but a social network.

The joke with the porn pages on duty didn’t take long to appear, but what was taken as a joke at first has begun to bother manysince the replacement of the well-known little blue bird has been completed in record time and in both the web application and the mobile client, what you see now is…

No matter how you look at it, it looks bad. And, sure, he’s upset a lot of Twitter users for the obvious. This is, By far the biggest Elon Musk troll since he threatened to buy the social network. In any case, and if you are in the group of people who uses Twitter, but rejects the new image of the platform, you can make a fix with little effort.

For Chrome (and derivatives), for example, this extension has just been released, which will return the graceful bird to the front of Twitter, removing the X from the view. As you can see, it’s not even available in the Chrome Store yet and you have to install it in developer mode, but its existence has spread on Twitter (on Twitter, yes, not on X) and it’s reliable. In addition, it won’t take long for it to be incorporated into the Chrome extensions store with more options than the current ones and, almost certainly, we won’t have to wait long to see it in Firefox either.

On the other hand, those who are complaining the most are Android users, where the icon change has already been made effective. what to do in that case? Depends. There is launchers that allow the modification of application icons individually. If not, all that remains is to change the entire icon theme to one that preserves Larry… In other words, the Twitter bird.
