@Jacinda Espinosa I noticed briefly that Engage>Publish was showcasing “Twitter” with the X logo for a little while, but then switched back to the Twitter bird logo. And then this mCommunity post is calling it Twitter. Just curious if/when Meltwater will refer to it as X or Twitter moving forward? Thanks! 

Hey @Maria Dehne - we’re waiting for word from Twitter on this before we make any changes. For now, we’ll be keeping Twitter, but once we get word directly from the source we’ll update accordingly! We’ll keep you posted on any changes with this going forward but for now we’re keeping the blue birds 🐦
