Florida Senator Marco Rubio has started some buzz on Twitter with his campaign logo. While it is too early to tell how it will rank against everyone else who will toss their names into the presidential race, it is generating a fair bit of traffic on Twitter. Ever since the 2008 presidential election when Barrack Obama successfully used Twitter to galvanize his minions in real-time, candidates from both parties actively use social networking.
The new Rubio logo has a lucid white background with the name “marco rubio” in lower case. The name “marco” is in a burgundy color and “rubio” is in a darker shake of purple. The dot over the letter “i” is an icon of the lower 48 states. Below his name is the tag line “A NEW AMERICAN CENTURY”. Thus far, it appears people are finding the logo to be somewhat artistic. The use of the lower 48 states as the dot over the letter “i” has appealed to some Twitter users. Others appear to view the icon much like the ink blot in a Rorschach test. Sam Tabar has learned that one Twitter user thought it was a whale. Still, another user likened it to a name brand bottle of flavored water. In the end, it appears that Rubio is drawing some attention among younger voters.
