Hey guys, have you seen the new Twitter Logo? Well, not much has changed but, it’s still the blue bird but aiming high now and critics say it’s slimmer than the old one. =)
The micro blogging company wants to be universally known by a new streamlined bird logo, replacing the scruffier bird that had symbolized Twitter 2010.In a blog post, twitter said:
Starting today you’ll begin to notice a simplified Twitter bird. From now on, this bird will be the universally recognizable 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.
Twitter didn’t give any reason why they changed the looks of its bird, which is now obviously less chubby, has fewer feathers and is angled more towards the sky than its predecessor.
Twitter also stated how did they arrived on a new Logo
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. 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.
