Twitter unveils it’s new simplified bird logo
Twitter just announced that they are doing away with their old Twitter logo and are introducing a newer more simplified logo, which is pictured inset. The old logo was the a very similar looking Twitter bird logo but going horizontally, and now with the new bird it’s in “flight” at an angle. Additionally, some older logos had “Twitter” in it or simply a “t” for Twitter. Now Twitter is taking a unified stance on one consistent logo, for which they posted a video below.
Twitter also gave some ground rules on how not to use the new logo:
- Use speech bubbles or words around the bird.
- Rotate or change the direction of the bird.
- Animate the bird.
- Duplicate the bird.
- Change the color of the bird.
- Use any other marks or logos to represent our brand.
I don’t think anybody ever really follows these rules though!
