If you’re a Twitter user, or rather, an X user, you’ve likely encountered those pesky pop-ups notifying you of updated terms of service on the platform.
Admittedly, many of us tend to brush them off.
Retweets will now be referred to as reposts, effectively marking the end of an era for the term “tweet.”
In addition to this shift, there are several other rebranding efforts in the new terms.
Notably, there’s a substantial reduction in the use of the term “Twitter,” in favor of adopting the moniker “X.”
It’s worth noting a somewhat amusing detail, as many URLs in the terms still include “twitter”, even for us.
Several other updates are worth noting.
One clause states that by using X,
to the extent permitted by law, you also waive the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, or representative action proceeding.”
Another significant change involves the relocation of language concerning the misuse of Twitter’s services to a new section.
It now expressly prohibits scraping, which is something X owner Elon Musk has been vocal about disliking.
