Check out Twitter's redesigned logo
It's still the same blue bird - only with less feathers and a more cheerful demeanour?
Micro blogging giant Twitter introduced its redesigned logo through its blog recently. Gone is the lowercase 't', while the bird is in a darker shade of blue, with its head and beak tilting upward.
Twitter's creative director Doug Bowman said: "From now on, this bird will be the universally recognisable symbol of Twitter. (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."
For your information, the new bird is created from "three sets of overlapping circles — similar to how your networks, interests and ideas connect and intersect with peers and friends."
"Whether soaring high above the Earth to take in a broad view, or flocking with other birds to achieve a common purpose, a bird in flight is the ultimate representation of freedom, hope and limitless possibility," concluded Bowman.
Here's Twitter's introductory video.
