Twitter has ruffled its own feathers in a rebrand designed to reflect the 'living, breathing' nature of the conversations happening on the platform. The renowned bird vector remains the same, but instead of sitting on a plain blue background, Twitter has gone decidedly grunge by creating a collage-like canvas interspersed with faces and words. 

Apparently, its users are the inspiration for the new look, and after a turbulent year full of diverse issues – which were undoubtedly discussed on Twitter – we can see how the messy texture is an apt choice.
