Birdies: Cute Free Twitter Icons For Your Blog


In this post we release Birdies: A Free Twitter Icon Set, a set of 12 beautiful and lovely Twitter icons. This set was designed by IconEden1 and released exclusively for Smashing Magazine and its readers. All the icons included in the set have clean shapes and neutral colors that can be used for various contexts, from a “Tweet it” button for your blogs to desktop wallpapers.


The set is available in both pixel and EPS vector format so the icons can be rescaled to any size while retaining their original details. As usual, the icons are free for both personal and commercial projects.

Download the icon set for free!

You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes. The set may not be resold, sublicensed, rented, transferred or otherwise made available for use. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.


Thank you very much, guys! We appreciate your efforts!

    Thanks for this awesome icon set, and the .eps file! I wish I could make icons like these.

    These are not cute. They’re amateurish.

  32. 32

    These are an excellent icon set!

    However, like #27 with the eps folder I get “invalid or corrupt” when trying to extract them.

    Png files are fine.
