Twitter, which changed its name and logo to X, has removed the giant illuminated logo above its headquarters in San Francisco. Inspectors said they were prevented by staff from inspecting the sign and that the giant X logo sign did not have the proper permits.

A giant glowing X sign marks the San Francisco headquarters of Elon Musk's social media company known as 'Twitter'. But the company's neighbors and city officials are not happy with the image. A large flashing X atop Twitter's headquarters was removed just days after it was installed.

The sign had been placed on the company's terrace on Friday, and at night it projected the X with a powerful strobe light onto nearby buildings. Building inspectors investigated the matter and said 24 people complained about the sign over the weekend. 


Officials said they were not allowed on the roof to inspect the sign and that the necessary permits for the giant illuminated logo had not been obtained. 

Meanwhile, Elon Musk shared an eye-catching video of the X on his Twitter account on Saturday. 

This is not the only logo issue Twitter has faced. Last week, work to remove the Twitter logo on the side of the building was halted by police, again for lack of permission. Since most of the letters in the logo were removed, only the word 'er' remained on the building for a while. 

All this is the result of the rebranding that came with Elon Musk changing the company's name from Twitter to X. Musk wants to turn the platform known as Twitter into an 'app for everything' and it's clear that he will continue to liken it to WeChat.
