We were almost “smmsaging” not tweeting
Nick Bilton, writer of Hatching Twitter blogs about early iterations of Twitter logos names including “Twitch,” “Friendstalker” (ugh) and “Smssy.”
Founder Biz Stone threw a bunch into the pile but it was co-founder Noah Glass who pushed the rather awful green blob of a logo that they used for a while until the bubble writing blue twitter was taken up. Note that it was voweless twttr for a while.
All these have happily now been utterly superseded by the twitter bird which stands out as the best logo of any of the big internet boys currently.
