Monday Morning Twitter Mystery Answered

Screen Shot 2020-06-13 at 5.04.10 PM On Monday I asked readers what the name of the Twitter bird is.

The answer is Larry because ...  A founder of Twitter is reportedly a Boston Celtic fan -- hence "Larry" Bird.

I also asked folks to  I.D. the species. The best answer was from Diane Louie, who wrote:

The Twitter Bird reminds me of the birds in Snow White:

 
As for the species of bird in Snow White, the color scheme is closest to Mountain Bluebird, which is not European.  (Snow White I assume is European, so that doesn’t jive)….But I’m probably overthinking this.
 
After all, we’re talking cartoons here.
 
(Thanks, Diane!)
