Following the news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to rename his platform, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave an interesting suggestion on the rebrand.

The parent company of Facebook may soon have a new name following initial reports from The Verge this week.

The report also speculates the corporation wants to have a name that includes the word "Horizon," since it is how the platform's virtual reality (VR) platform is branded.

But there is no shortage of suggestions for the new name.

Dorsey responded in a tweet explaining the origin of the word ‘metaverse’ in a science fiction book, highlighting the author Neal Stephenson's prediction was right that a virtual world owned by private companies would be “a dystopian corporate dictatorship.”

He then tweeted:

“Central Intelligence Corporation."

The ‘metaverse’ has been building hype for months now.

Facebook announced its intention to hire over the next five years around 10,000 people in the EU to work on it.

It's still unclear what the metaverse would look like.

Some other Twitter users thought Zuckerberg wouldn’t need to look further than names of fictional evil corporations among science fiction franchises, or maybe just go for "Evilcor."

One person said Facebook should simply add ‘book’ to all its products, so, for example, Instagram would become “Assbook."

Facebook will announce the rebranding during the upcoming Connect conference next week, according to reports.
