Twitter's website says its logo, depicting a blue bird, is "our most recognizable asset," adding "That's why we're so protective of it." The bird was temporarily replaced in April by Dogecoin's Shiba Inu dog, which ended up helping add as much as $4 billion to the meme coin's market value.
Twitter's most recent complication was a lawsuit being filed on Tuesday claiming the firm owes at least $500 million in severance pay to former employees. Musk's company has laid off more than half its workforce to cut costs since he bought the company.
On Friday, Twitter said it intended to impose limitations on the daily number of posts from users who do not pay for its advanced services, inorder to reduce spam, although what the daily limit may be, was not revealed.
