Twitter Bird Gets Makeover

Twitter has given its mascot, Larry, a makeover -- but it's not extreme.
The micro-blogging website unveiled an altered version of the bird icon on Wednesday; New Larry is a deeper color blue, with three feathers instead of four as well as a more upward flight trajectory. He seems more serious than Old Larry.
"Our new bird grows out of love for ornithology, design within creative constraints, and simple geometry," writes Twitter's creative director Doug Bowman in a blog post. "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."
He adds: "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,"
