That Little Twitter Bird has a Name
Did you know that the Twitter mascot has a name?
HOW IT LEAKED
That little bird’s name leaked in 2012 through none other than – you guessed it – a tweet. Twitters API Manager, Ryan Sarver, tweeted a photo in a meeting where people were reviewing the evolution of the Larry the Bird Logo.
Turns out the little bird mascot is named after Larry Bird, former NBA player for the Boston Celtics. Why Larry Bird? A little bird (ha) told us that Twitter’s co-founder, Biz Stone, grew up in the Boston area. Turns out he’s a fan!
WHAT KIND OF BIRD IS LARRY?
Unfortunately, Ryan Sarver won’t tell us.
However, there is some speculation on the internet that Larry the Bird is a Mountain Bluebird.
What kind of bird do you think he is?
