New Twitter logo looks like Batman!

Holy spoofs, Batman! Yep, a likeness of Batman is what you'll see if you happen to rotate Twitter's new bird logo 90 degrees counterclockwise.

A Twitter user, Josh Helfferich, tweeted this observation and posted an image of the uncanny likeness.

"So uh... if you turn the new Twitter logo upside-down, it's Batman," Helfferich said.

His photo (pic.twitter.com/zyoTEpJP) showed a black version of the rotated bird logo resembling a side view of a scowling Batman.

Tech site Mashable reported the tweet went viral, with nearly 1,000 retweets in an hour-and-a-half.

Mashable also said the graphic originally appeared on Oliver Twardowski‘s Dribble profile Thursday.

On the other hand, Mashable said a similar image appeared on Reddit earlier Thursday and has been viewed more than 1,600 times.

Mashable said the spoofs come a day after Twitter unveiled a makeover for its bird logo, which has now had three facelifts. — LBG, GMA News
