Twitter Ditching Egg Profile Photo

TwitTwitter Blog

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.
