By now most of us are pretty accustomed to the Threads logo, but the design as we know it could've looked very different. Threads dropped when X rivals were popping up left right and centre, and at the time, any design seemed better than Elon's infamous X icon, but in its early days, the Threads logo was met with a mixed response.

While it's by no means one of the best logos of all time, the Threads icon serves its purpose as Instagram's X-rival offspring. Yet after a series of scrapped designs was recently released, dare I say we were robbed of some stylish alternatives that never saw the light of day.
