Twitter has announced it does not want the media and its partners to use the "twitter" blue bubbly logo, instead, they will now picture Twitter with its brand new bluebird, well, the same actually, but now it is soaring up. Representing the growth of the microblogging platform.
"From now on, this bird will be the universally recognizable symbol of 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, via a blog post.
Twitter has now a list of guidelines on the usage of its new logo, the DOs include: use the unmodified logo to represent the bird, make sure the bird face is right, have 150% of buffer space around it. The DON'Ts include: rotate or change the bird's direction, change the color or animate the bird, use speech bubbles or words around it, and use any other mark or logo to represent Twitter instead of the new bird.
