Freebies: 2 Awesome Twitter Icons

Article written by Jeeremie

I am always looking for some free twitter icons to use on personal or business projects. While there s some really gorgeous icons out there (the Cute Twitter Icon Set is a great example), there s also a whole bunch of shitty icons.

Then, a few weeks ago, when one of my client asked me if I could design some Twitter illustrations for one of his project, I thought it would be nice to design a couple of Twitter icons to give away on my blog. I started to sketch out a few ideas and finalized them in Illustrator. Here s the end result:



The zip contains two transparent PNG icons available in resolutions of 128 128 pixels, 256 256 and 512 512:

Alternatively, you can download the source files if you need to modify text or colors. The sources are in AI files (Adobe Illustrator CS3), PSD files and EPS files:

Download(5.3 MiB, 7,772 hits)

You can freely use them for both your private and commercial projects, including templates and themes. A link back or some credits would be nice but not mandatory.


That s my small contribution to the Twitter community. Leave me a note in the comments if you like them or Follow Me! I have a couple of other sketches waiting in my notebook so I might create more icons in the future if you really like them. ;)


You can preview the icons on my Flickr account if you want to see how they look when size is reduced:

Andreas Papula made a green version of one of the icon above (PSD file). To download this icon, use this direct link:

    A slightly different approach to Twitter Icons. I love them!

  26. Andreas Papula says:

    22 May, 2010

    p.s.: May i “recolor” them? The blue doesn t fit with my site, i would like to turn it into green (of course i would publish it under same license than your orginal and link back to you with all credits).

    • Jeeremie says:

      22 May, 2010

      Yes. Please, do. Let us know when you did.

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the
    exact same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you re working with? I m looking to start
    my own blog in the near future but I m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
