Dr. Timothy Dewhirst, professor in the Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies, discussed the re-branding of Twitter to X in a commentary for the Toronto Star . 

“Given Twitter’s previously well-established brand awareness and recognition, the identification change is risky,” Dewhirst writes.
