Twitter brand guidelines – does your site comply?

First published on

Last summer Twitter announced new guidelines on how we can use their logo – which will effect a LOT of websites around the web.

Twitter say the new guidelines are to save you “having to worry about negotiating a separate agreement with us or talking to our lawyers”.

Whereas previously the web was full of little “t”s or “twitter” logos, now you can only use their bird. And it has to be the right colour, facing the right way and have enough space around it.

Personally, I think they’re being unrealistic with stating how much “buffer” space the icon should have because a lot of members of the public who run websites are not graphic designers – the logo is used by people all over the world who have never had to read a brand guidelines doc in their life!

The guidelines are here, and include handy downloads to make sure you’re using the right image.
