So Twitter is now X, apparently as part of owner Elon Musk's plan to create an 'everything app' something along the lines of WeChat. For now, the only change is that the Twitter bird logo has been replaced by a bizarre, presumably temporary crowdsourced X logo. But the latest turn in Musk's chaotic takeover of the platform is likely to see even more people leaving Twitter (sorry, I mean X).

X doesn't really work as a verb, so if you can't bring yourself to 'X' instead of tweet, this latest move might be the final straw after the Twitter blue tick debacle and controversies over falling standards in moderation. But chances are you still need a platform on which to share ideas, discuss your work and connect with other creatives. If that's the case, we have you covered: below, we review 7 Twitter alternatives that could serve creatives leaving the platform.
