The default blue and white Twitter icon is something that has been a constant with the popular social media app for many years, but it looks like the company may be allowing users the ability to change that in the near future. A new survey that was sent to those that are a part of the Twitter Insiders program gives users a selection of new app icons to choose from, which apparently could be implemented at some point in the future.
This survey features a few different app icons that can be seen at the top of this post, and they are taking feedback to see what users currently think of them. All of the icons feature the same bird silhouette, and two of them really aren’t all that different compared to the current one. However, there is one that nixes the blue and white color scheme entirely for one with a black bird silhouette and a white background, which looks pretty cool.
To go along with the proposed customizable app icon, the company is also testing a new splash screen for the app. This essentially shows a quick slideshow of pictures appearing inside of the bird silhouette, before ultimately launching the app. It’s an interesting little touch, but definitely not something that needs to be there by any means.
We need to take all of this with a grain of salt for the time being, considering that it’s just a part of a survey that the company sent out. They could just be testing the waters and then end up not implementing either of these, but we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
