Twitter's Platform/API product manager Ryan Sarver told that the world-famous bluebird was in fact called Larry.

He posted a picture from a Twitter meeting he'd been to in which creative director Douglas Bowman was analyzing the logo's evolution and wrote: 'Going over Design @Twitter. The evolution of the Larry the Bird logo.'

The origin of the name is a mystery, though there has been some speculation that the bird is named after Larry Bird, who played for the basketball team that Twitter co-founder Biz Stone supports - the Boston Celtics.
