SAN FRANCISCO, Apr. 8, 2014 Greenpeace activists unveiled a new logo for Twitter today outside the companys San Francisco headquarters: a person-sized, green version of Twitters famous icon. The bird urged the company to join peers like Facebook in building a green internet by committing to 100 % renewable energy.

The activists arrived outside of Twitters headquarters on Market St. at 9:00 am, wheeling a 6-foot tall green egg, which opened to reveal a person in a green costume styled after Twitters bird logo. The bird, along with activists, handed pocket-sized compostable eggs to employees as they walked into the building, each egg containing messages like: We love tweeting, but would love it more if it was green. Commit Twitter to 100 % renewable energy.
