LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Rapper and singer Doja Cat asked Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, for help in updating her Twitter name -- 'Christmas' -- on the micro blogging site, and later changed it to "fart." The Grammy-winning pop artist, who has regularly altered her name in the past, sent Musk a message on Wednesday, November 9, saying, "I don't wanna be christmas forever @elonmusk please help i've made a mistake."

Doja's issues all began when she changed her name to 'Christmas' prior to Twitter's new Blue subscription policy. Earlier this week, Twitter launched the subscription service allowing users to buy blue-tick verification for a monthly fee of $7.99. The original verification system was intended to identify influential people, including government figures, sports stars, entertainment figures, journalists and major brands and organisations.

Musk earlier said that changing a user's online name would result in the temporary loss of a checkmark. Doja was caught in the limbo of these policy changes, and sought Musk's help.

Doja's initial question on Wednesday was, "Why can't I change my name on here?" The singer later asked the same question again, but this time she included foul language, writing: "How do I change it also f**k you elon."

Eventually, the 51-year-old SpaceX founder noticed her tweets and replied, "Working on it!" Elon also quipped, "Pretty funny though" after Doja said she didn't want to continue with the name Christmas forever.

Internet couldn't control it after the hilarious exchange of tweets between the singer and the new Twitter boss. A user shared a meme and wrote, "This you now that you will no longer be able to change your name every other week nor repeatedly tweet the same thing after the new twitter rules." One user shared a funny photoshopped image and said, "You right now and forever... merry christmas." Another user wrote, "Is it weird i find her more cute like this? LMFAO." "@elonmusk help her she wants to be halloween," said one user. Some found her previous handle good enough and some joined her in tagging Musk for help. A user wrote, "Christmas forever sounds good tho." One user penned, "I hope he helps girl, otherwise you gone be stuck and Christmas mode all year round but I don't think I'd complain, you always got something catchy ready."

Bye." Another penned, "He blocking your account when he sees that you changed to fart." One user trolled Doja and wrote, "Fart… really? What are you, 5?" Another user penned, "Great now you going to be fart for eternity bye Doja."
