SAN FRANCISCO — The bright ‘X’ sign on the roof of X’s, formerly Twitter, headquarters has been taken down.

Workers were spotted taking the sign down Monday morning, about three days after it was installed.

The bright sign was also flashing at night, which irritated some residents.

“I thought it was lightning, and I was very confused. I went to my window, I looked around, I didn’t see anything. I thought it was maybe a police siren,” said resident Patricia Wallinga, who lives across the street.

Meanwhile, San Francisco city officials over the weekend said they had opened a complaint and were investigating the sign installation. According to the city, erecting a sign on top of a building requires a permit for design and safety reasons.

A review and approval are necessary as well.

Work to remove Twitter’s logo at the building was previously stopped by police, saying they hadn’t taped off the sidewalk to keep pedestrians safe if anything fell.
