Culture and entertainment: If you enter the address of a user on, you will then be sent to, Musk wrote on precisely X Friday.

– All core systems are now on, writes Musk, who bought the then Twitter in October 2022 for 44 billion dollars and later decided to change the name. Both that and other changes, such as weaker moderation and severe cuts in staff, have met with great opposition among users. Also the advertisers, who were the main source of income, failed X/Twitter after the takeover, for fear of being associated with hate speech that would no longer be stopped. X denies that hate speech is a problem.

According to Musk, the name change was necessary to show that the service was something more than an online platform for short messages. Among other things, he wants to add a function for calling with X and wants the platform to be used for money transfers and job placement.
