“Twitter probably accelerates X by 3 to 5 years, but I could be wrong,” tweeted Elon Musk.
Tesla’s CEO has mentioned X before; in August, when asked if he would consider creating his own social media platform if Twitter’s deal didn’t work out, Musk responded: “X.com.”
The Obsession of The Letter X
Tesla’s CEO is reportedly obsessed with the letter X, people have noted on Twitter. The first online bank Musk founded was X.com, whose name changed to Paypal when the company merged with its competitor, Confinity Inc, in 2000.
The domain name X.com was repurchased by Musk from Paypal in 2015. In his attempt to buy Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk created a few entities called “X Holdings” in their names such as “X Holdings I” and “X Holdings II”.
It’s not clear how Musk envisions Twitter X, but in June he did share his vision with Twitter employees.

He compared it to Wechat, the Chinese app that lets users perform payments, play games, and even hail rides.
“There’s no Wechat equivalent outside of China … You basically live on Wechat in China. If we can recreate that with Twitter, we’ll be a great success,” Musk said.
