Today while digging through the web for cool logo designs, I came across one in particular that actually went viral on Twitter on Thursday. Where was I while this was happening? Who knows, but I missed it.
Below is the full article along with the logo. It’s pretty awesome if you ask me.

Twitter let fly its revamped logo on Thursday, but some people are seeing more than just a blue bird.
In a Rorschach inkblot-test sort of way, California-based Josh Helfferich tweeted Thursday that the redesigned fowl actually resembled another bird-like creature: Batman.
“So uh … if you turn the new Twitter logo upside-down, it’s Batman,” he wrote, above an attached computerized drawing of the caped crusader.
The image immediately went viral, Mashable reported, gaining almost 1,000 retweets in the hour-and-a-half since it was posted yesterday at 3:05 p.m. Eastern.
The rendering was actually first posted on Wednesday in a mocking graphic by California’sRyan Greenberg, who tweaked the company’s original usage guidelines for its new logo, adding to the authentic list, “Don’t: Change the logo to look like Batman,” with the cartoon underneath.
Bruce Wayne isn’t the only incarnation of the Twitter bird.
In a more appropriate color scheme, Gizmodo reader Ben Flores, a San Francisco designer,sent a graphic showing the obvious Sonic the Hedgehog transformation.
The new logo is actually built out of three sets of overlapping circles, Twitter’s creative director Doug Bowman wrote this week on the company’s blog. “The bird is everywhere, constantly associated with Twitter the service, and Twitter the company,” Bowman said.
That association now comes with a utility belt and the Batmobile.
