“So we painted it as a background. Problem solved!” Musk tweeted on Sunday.
It looks like Elon Musk really wanted the sign outside Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters to say “Teeter” — and he was ready to do some paint work to make it happen.
On Sunday, the social media platform’s CEO posted a picture of a symbol with a “w” painted in white to blend into the background.
In a statement, Musk wrote: “Our owner at SFHQ is legally required to sign off as Twitter and we can’t remove the ‘w’, so we painted it as a background. Problem solved!”

Last Thursday, entrepreneur and programmer William Legate tweeted an image of the logo, which had the “w” hidden.
“In a remarkable display of maturity, Elon Musk has removed the ‘w’ from the Twitter logo outside its San Francisco headquarters,” Leggett’s statement read.
