Twitter got its First Logo for Less Than $20
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read short 140-character text messages, called "tweets". This was created in March 2006 and launched by July month of the same year. After Twitter launched in 2006, the team bought its first logo for just about $15 which is equal to two cups of coffee.
Twitter's logo wasn't always the plump, happy blue bird that we're all used to today. According to The New York Times, Simon Oxley, a British graphic designer living in Japan was designed the first logo who had submitted it to the stock photography website, iStock. At that time, Simon Oxley had never heard of this Social networking site Twitter.
Twitter eventually abandoned this design in 2009, because the companies are not allowed to use iStock logos as their official logos. The company didn't fix on its current design until 2012, when it rebranded to something a little more sophisticated to produce the current logo.
