Meaning of Twitter Logo

The story of the logo of Twitter, one of the most popular microblogging sites in the world, is at least as interesting as the founding of the medium. We also thought it was necessary to mention this because it is a part of the "history of Twitter".

This bird-shaped logo, which has an important place in Twitter's branding, has become synonymous with the company. It has been a matter of curiosity for a long time why the name of the blue bird in the logo is "Larry". The mystery regarding this issue was resolved when Biz Stone, one of the co-founders of Twitter, tweeted to Peter Stringer in 2011. Accordingly, behind the naming of the bird in the logo as Larry is Larry Bird, the basketball player of the Boston Celtics, one of the NBA teams. Twitter's blue bird is named "Larry The Bird", dedicated to the famous basketball player.
