X’s new home icon frustrates designers

Old Twitter home icon vs the new X home icon

X (formerly known as Twitter) just doesn't feel like home since Musk took the reins, and the social media platform has certainly seen some controversial design updates since its rebrand. Adding to its extensive list of design fails, X has recently done away with the twee little birdbox home icon, replacing it with an infuriatingly off-centre house design.

As each day we wave goodbye to yet another remnant of old Twitter, this is a small but mighty change, to say the least – you might not even have noticed, but now you know, you won't be able to unsee it, sorry. (If you need some design inspiration that's a little less askew, check out the best logo designs of all time).
