For the past seven years, everyone who has created an account on Twitter starts out with their default profile photo as an egg. This was a playful way to reference how eggs hatch into birds that send all the Tweets you see on Twitter! But now it’s time for something new – something that encourages people to upload their own photos for more personal expression. So today, we’re introducing a new default profile photo.
Well, at least not trolls won’t be hiding behind an egg. But makes sense for Twitter to change their default egg profile to a more human-like profile.
Will this fix Twitter troll problem? No. But it’s a step in the right direction.
Cool history of Twitter Profile default photos.
