Twitter announced Friday that it was ditching the egg avatar as a default profile picture and replacing it with a "gender-balanced" figure.
For the past seven years, the egg icon was the default profile picture for every new Twitter account.
The company said in a blog post that it was meant to reference "how eggs hatch into birds that send all the Tweets you see on Twitter."
Twitter said they wanted a new default profile photo to "prompt more self-expression."
"The new default image feels more like an empty state or placeholder, and we hope it encourages people to upload images that express themselves," the company said.
