Twitter refined its bird.
This next bit, quoted from Gawker, made me smile. Per the illustration (above), you absolutely cannot:
- Add a gray speech bubble next to the bird that makes it appear as if the bird is talking or smoking hookah
- Make the bird be upside down
- Reunite the bird with his bird family
- Change the bird to a better color
- Give the bird a small gray ledge on which to perch
- Transform the bird into a bubble letter “t” or the word “twitter”
- Give the bird eyes and legs and a song in his heart
- Make the bird look the way he used to even though no one would notice

Is Twitter’s logo change the most revolutionary rebranding of the modern era?
A few thoughts from elsewhere:

Twitter should have launched a new brand story, not just a new logo, Simon Manchipp on Design Week

Oliver Twardowski brazenly ignored the upside down rule with this rotation.
