Along with this change, Twitter has updated it's logo usage guidelines. Take a look below at some of the guidelines, including no longer using the "t" logo or the "twitter" name logo.
- Use our official, unmodified Twitter bird to represent our brand.
- Make sure the bird faces right.
- Allow for at least 150% buffer space around the bird.
- Use speech bubbles or words around the bird.
- Rotate or change the direction of the bird.
- Duplicate the bird.
- Change the color of the bird.
- Use any other marks or logos to represent our brand.
