New Twitter Logo Looks Like Batman, and Sonic

Twitter has a new logo. I guess they wanted a change for whatever reason. However, the new logo still bears a resemblance to the old one. It also now looks like other things. Twitter explicitly forbade the rotation of its logo, and of course that just made people start turning it.
