Why Twitter changes Egg Profile Picture

“We’ve noticed patterns of behavior with accounts that are created only to harass others—often they don’t take the time to personalize their accounts. This has created an association between the default egg profile photo and negative behavior, which isn’t fair to people who are still new to Twitter and haven’t yet personalized their profile photo.”
More deeply we can say that any people can hide themselves through this egg. These people are sometimes very harmful for the other users.
Twitter senior manager for product design Mr. Bryan Haggerty said “These regular users would be using a troll’s clothing in some ways, not realizing that they probably should be changing that,”.
This new avatar is called nondescript human silhouette. Twitter chooses this so that it should not remain unidentified & anonymous.
This change is not just a change for appearance. This is also a step to lessen the abuse & harassment that happens with many users. They can’t even know that it is male or female. This will also let them know the account is fake or real.
Removing the egg will let a improvement that will come that will decrease such number of people.
