Installation of the “X” emblem on the Twitter building prompted San Francisco to look into a possible permission violation

As owner Elon Musk continues to rename the social media site, the mayor of San Francisco has submitted a complaint and initiated an investigation into a huge “X” sign that was put Friday on top of the downtown skyscraper formerly known as Twitter headquarters.

According to city officials, a permit is necessary for design and safety concerns when changing letters or symbols on buildings or putting a sign on top of one.

The X surfaced after San Francisco police prevented workers on Monday from removing the company’s signature bird and emblem from the side of the building, claiming they had failed to tape off the pavement to protect people in the event that anything dropped.
