Twitter has changed its default profile image from ‘Twitter Egg’ to a human silhouette. The micro-blogging website has been continuously trolled for its ‘Twitter Egg’, which has been the default image for the users who haven’t set any profile picture.
The ‘egg’ is often negatively associated with those users who created accounts to harass or to troll. For this reason, twitter wanted to change the default image; ReCode reported on Friday.
“This created an association between the default Egg Image and negatively processed thoughts, which is totally unfair for the members who are new to the account or yet hadn’t personalized their default profile picture.”
“We received many head shapes of different styles and variations. It was reviewed by altering both head and shoulders to feel more exclusive for all the genders”, the company said.
The twitter people reacted to the new default image with demanding the old ‘egg image’ back or reacting ‘just another egg’. Here are the few hilarious responses.
