It’s all about eggs. With easter coming up as the next big seasonal festive, lets talk about the true origin of the (twitter) egg.
Since I am a fan of Twitter (since january 2011), the default image of Twitter fascinates me. It is simple and comes in many colors. Here is a blue one:
Now there’s an egg. When somebody follows me on Twitter, still using this default egg-image, I don’t feel like following back. A Twitter account or person, still in it’s shelf can’t be any good. As a creative the first thing I would do is change the avatar. Wouldn’t you?
But where does this egg thing come from? Twitter is all about following and being followed. The only egg I want to follow is the image of Shiv Baba – the soul ‘God’:
It is not a coincidence that the word for One in Hindi is ‘egg’. There is only One to be followed.The highest supreme soul.
Throughout the cycle of time, referred to as Kalpa, we remember and worship the One, THE EGG, as a stone symbol. Also known als a Shiva Linga or Shiva Lingum.
Shiva means “auspiciciousness” and “linga” means sign or symbol, and these stones are a devotional symbol to the Hindu God Shiva.
So in short, IF you want to follow an egg: follow the BIG egg.
