Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Yes, it is a bird. I am pleased to report that Larry the Twitter bird has flown the nest. He has been replaced by a new, yet to be named design from the Twitter team.
Twitter appears to be killing two birds with one stone in what seems to be a clever rebranding from the social networking site. Not only does the new logo bring about a fresh new look, but talk of the new bird is bringing outside attention from other sources to the site. 

The social networking site allows users to post ‘tweets’, short messages of up to 140 characters, onto their site which are shared with their followers. The site is very popular with celebrities and is said to have more than 140 million active users. 

However, feathers have been ruffled as many people complain that the new bird actually isn’t that different to Larry. The bird has been flipped to face the right hand side, it’s feathers spruced up and the feathers on its head plucked, as can be seen below:
Here’s what the Twitter blog had to say about the hatching of the new image:
“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.”
So the only question left to ask is: will the new twitter bird rule the roost?
