8chan is back online, but this time, under a new name.
8kun has taken over as the controversial image board’s new name.
After being down since August 5 due to the El Paso mass shooter’s involvement with the site, 8chan’s Twitter account tweeted Sunday, October 6, a video promoting the site’s new name and logo.
The new logo is a snake in the shape of an 8.
8Chan also tweeted, “If you were previously a Board Owner on 8chan, please email us at [email protected] with your shared secret if you are interested in migrating your board to 8kun.”
