Everybody Meet the Twitter Mascot…Larry the Bird

I know you’ve wanted to know for some time. It had to have crossed your mind at least once. It has for me.

We finally know the name of the Twitter bird.

Say hello to Larry.

The little guy may have been named after former NBA player, Larry Bird, who played for Twitter co-founder Biz Stone’s home-state team, the Boston Celtics.

Ryan Sarver, product manager for Twitter’s Platform/API team, mentioned Larry’s name in a tweet on February 27. The tweet featured a picture of Twitter’s creative director Douglas Bowman speaking about Larry the bird’s evolution since the site was founded in 2006.

What next? Finding out what species Larry might be?? Wait…too late.

WebProNews’ Samuel Arbesman tried to find out by tweeting Sarver — but, nothing came from it. Supposedly, it’s a big secret.
