Twitter over hasn’t changed its default profile picture and everyone on the platform started with the default profile picture of egg. As the company is trying to cut down the harassment on the network, it has decided to include a gender neutral picture in an attempt to encourage people to upload their own photos for more personal expression.
As mentioned earlier, twitter decided to embrace the change in order to promote more self-expression. The company mentioned that there has been specific patterns in the users’ behavior who created account for harassing others. The company noted that there’s an association between the egg default profile photo and negative behavior which is obviously not fair to people who are new to Twitter and haven’t uploaded their own photo yet.
