Shape of the Twitter Logo
The Twitter bird was famously purchased for six dollars in a stock photo bank.

A simplified and more playful version of the old bird with a different haircut and upturned beak, it is based heavily on perfect circles. The Twitter bird symbolizes freedom, happiness and hope.
The Twitter logo is undoubtedly one of the most popular logos on the planet.
