As spotted Numerama, an easter egg has been included. It is possible to embed a Twitter logo in your tweets. You have to type [CHIRPBIRDICON] and a little bird appears. In addition, the historic blue is less present. The button to subscribe to an account has been changed and reversed compared to the old version. Instead of solid blue, a previously tracked person now has a white logo with a black font.
