Facebook Goes Meta: Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey, Others Take Jibes at Rebranding – Gadgets 360

Facebook on Thursday announced it was changing the parent company’s name to “Meta.” Following the move, many people saw the rebranding exercise as an excuse to have a go at the social media giant. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was among them. He suggested that the new name of the company was confusing and it was not clear what it referred to. He called the title “self-referential.”

Zuckerberg has billed “Meta,” which comes from the word “metaverse,” as the future of both Facebook and the Internet. But Dorsey did not appear convinced about the exercise. “meta: referring to itself or to the conventions of its genre; self-referential,” he tweeted.

He was not alone. Twitter, too, joined him in having a good laugh.

The post has been retweeted over 23,000 times and has got 1.64 lakh ‘likes,’ at the time of writing. One user (@AOC) had a dig on Facebook by referring to privacy concerns of its users and controversies surrounding it over allegedly giving importance to profit over removing problematic content.
