Twitter recently released a new bird logo. What do you think? From the Twitter blog, “starting today you’ll begin to notice a simplified Twitter bird. From now on, this bird will be the universally recognizable symbol of Twitter. (Twitter is the bird, the bird is Twitter.) There’s no longer a need for text, bubbled typefaces, or a lowercase “t” to represent Twitter.”
I was browsing YouTube and I noticed an unfamiliar logo. I double checked the address bar to just to be sure I wasn’t in some YouTube look-alike or fake website. There are plenty of those sites nowadays, especially of the porn variety. Well, one quick look at the address bar and I realized, I was indeed looking at the authentic YouTube website.
For some apparent reason, the logo just doesn’t seem right at all. The word “Tube” doesn’t have that familiar red background. Instead, it has a gold bubble button-like background. There is also a building next to the logo. For a second there, I thought I was looking at Oracle headquarters building in Redwood Shores, CA.
That wouldn’t be right knowing Oracle’s contentious relationship with Google. So, what do you think of the new logo? Is it here to stay?
