This is just too perfect if it’s true:  Elon Musk might hit a snag in his attempt to change the name of Twitter to “X”… because Mark Zuckerberg may own the rights to that letter.

Zuckerberg’s Meta has reportedly registered an “X” logo in connection with, quote, “online social networking services” and “social networking services in the fields of entertainment, gaming, and application development.”

But for the moment, things are moving forward over at X headquarters in San Francisco.

Yesterday, workers started removing the word “Twitter” from the side of the building.  But they were stopped temporarily by police because there was confusion over whether or not they had proper authorization.  They did.
