Elon Musk’s Latest Post Shows a New X Revamp Might be Underway
Elon Musk, the visionary owner of social media giant platform X recently shared his thoughts on the user interface of the platform, hinting at the possibility of a significant revamp.
The Potential X Revamp
In a post that caught the attention of millions of users, Musk said he was using the social media platform’s “web interface on PC last night for the first time in a while. It’s not good. Phone interface is far better.”
While Musk’s post didn’t explicitly state that X is planning a revamp, it has led to speculation within the tech community. X, like other social media platforms, constantly evolves and updates its features to improve user experience and stay competitive. Musk’s post could serve as valuable feedback for the platform’s developers, pushing them to re-evaluate and improve its web interface.
Elon Musk’s recent post about X’s user interface garnered significant attention, not only from his massive following but also from the Twitter community as a whole. While Musk’s post expressed a preference for the mobile interface over the web version, it was Twitter user @Keen_Speaks who added an important perspective to the conversation.
I spend a lot of time on PC on desktop app.
Both web interface and desktop could use a little work. Respectfully.
Spaces speaker actions on desktop app are glitchy and not complete. You can’t put up your hand to speak.

In his response, @Keen_Speaks pointed out that the desktop app indeed has room for improvement. He specifically mentioned issues with Spaces speaker actions, highlighting that they are glitchy and incomplete, making it impossible to use certain features like raising one’s hand to speak.
The Evolution of X Post-Elon Musk Takeover
The X platform has undergone significant changes since Musk purchased the platform. This transformation includes the removal of a key ad feature for its premium subscribers and a substantial increase in the subscription fee to the X platform.
One of the most noticeable changes initiated by Elon Musk is the rebranding of Twitter to X Platform. This rebranding represents a shift in the platform’s identity and possibly its overall mission. The choice of the name ‘X’ suggests a broader vision, encompassing not just text-based microblogging but possibly other forms of content and interactions.
In a recent development, Musk has unveiled an upcoming functionality that promises to bring video and audio conversations to X. This exciting development is set to accommodate users across various platforms, including iOS, Android, Mac, and PC, and it carries the unique distinction of not requiring a phone number.
