Doja Cat is no longer known as Christmas on Twitter, after Elon Musk saves the day

Doja Cat is no longer called Christmas. That’s the big news today.

The rapper changed her name on Twitter earlier this week to the prematurely festive moniker. It was meant to be a temporary change, but a glitch in the system – seemingly as a result of the social media platform’s switch to a subscription set-up for verified accounts – left her (and others) unable to subsequently change her Twitter name to anything else.

There’s been an awful lot going down at Twitter since its acquisition by Elon Musk, of course. That has resulted in various changes going on behind the scenes, in particular around verified accounts and the subscription package that Musk sees as being key to to the social media firm’s future existence.

Stuck with Christmas as her Twitter name, Doja Cat tweeted yesterday: “How do I change it, also fuck you Elon”. Then, slightly more diplomatically, she tagged the new Twitter owner into another tweet, pleading: “I don’t wanna be Christmas forever @elonmusk. Please help, I’ve made a mistake”.

Having fired most of Twitter’s employees, Musk did actually take on the roll of tech support himself, responding: “Working on it! Pretty funny though”.

Last night he informed her: “You should be able to change your name now”.

Musk was indeed true to his word, and Doja Cat is now no longer known as Christmas on her Twitter profile. She gratefully responded: “Thank you Elon”.

And so, that is why, if you’re checking out Doja Cat on Twitter today, she is currently going by the name Fart.
