As of today, the Twitter bird has been changed to a more simplified version. It is not as scruffy, less chubby, and angled upward more. There has been no given reason for the change, but it will be unviversal. No more of the old bird, or the lowercase bubble-letter "t", they will both be replaced by this new, sleeker bird.
The reason this article caught my eye is because I have a twitter account, but i rarely use it. This sparked my brain and reminded me about my account, so I may start using it again. It really ahs nothing to do with the logo, but the general topic of the article, Twitter, got my attention.
