Twitter Logo

500 million users and six years later, Twitter, the social networking giant, has unveiled a new, simpler logo for its bird image. “Twitter is the bird, the bird is Twitter. There’s no longer a need for text, bubbled typefaces, or a lowercase ‘t’ to represent Twitter”, said Doug Bowman, creative director of Twitter on the company’s blog.

‘Larry’, the name of the Twitter bird we recognise and grown to love, is now sexily simpler with a neater haircut, stretched wings and in a more ‘takeoff’ pose.

[quote]“Our new bird grows out of love for ornithology, design within creative constraints, and simple geometry. This bird is crafted purely from three sets of overlapping circles—similar to how your networks, interests and ideas connect and intersect with peers and friends,” Bowman also wrote. [/quote]


Twitter also recently quietly tweaked the way usernames, hashtags, photos and more are cross-posted to Facebook. The updated Twitter-Facebook integration now includes additional rich media experiences related to the first photo, URL, @mention or #hashtag in the cross-posted tweet.
