    Neighbors Are Real Mad At Elon Musk For Installing A Giant Extremely Bright Blinking "X" On The Former Twitter Headquarters

    Yeah, I'd be real mad, too.

    If you're not up-to-date on all of the Twitter/X/whatever it's called drama, let me fill you in real quick.

    Elon Musk has officially changed the name of Twitter to "X."

    This past week, people noticed their apps changing from the little bird icon to a black X one.

    Elon took down the Twitter sign at headquarters.

    He also put a huge "X" on the roof.

    Elon shared a video of it:

    But people in the neighborhood aren't happy about this giant X.

    Why? Because it's really, really, really bright, and the strobing is kind of maddening.

    Christopher J. Beale who lives across the street posted a video of his view of it:

    "This is my life now," he said.

    It's so bright that the city of San Francisco is investigating it.

    Elon replied to a tweet claiming SF was trying to remove the "X" with a crying laughing emoji.

    Just another day, another drama in Elon land.
