Mr. Mask once muttered that he would change the name 'tweet' to 'X' 'X's', but in the end these changes were not made.

In addition, Mr. Mask said one of the reasons for changing Twitter to X, ``The name Twitter was meaningful when messages of 140 characters were exchanged like birds chirping, but now it is a few hours of video.
