It seems everyone is in the Halloween spirit early this year as many organizations are changing their Twitter handles to reflect the spirited holiday.
In the Halloween spirit
YouTube is now BooTube, Google is Boogle and Google Maps Googhoul Maps. Other related sites are also following suit such as YouTube Gaming which is now Bootube Gaming and YouTube Creators which has become BooTube Creators.
Meanwhile, Google Developers has now become Ghoulish Deadvelopers with two skeleton emojis on each end of the words. Even more serious bodies such as NASA Goddard are getting in on the fun with the organization changing its Twitter handle to Nasa Gourd-dard.
Break off a pizza our heart, why don’t you.https://t.co/tDMW2WY4EN— Googhoul Maps 👻 (@googlemaps) October 25, 2019
The changes in names come with some interesting illustrations. Both BooTube and Boogle have some pumpkins where the Os are supposed to be while Googhoul Maps has a ghost emoji after the "Maps."
No matter where we're from, we're all curious about our place in the universe. 🌌#IAC2019 attendees toured Goddard yesterday, where they received a comprehensive view of the science and engineering we do here with @NASAWFIRST, @NASA_SatServ and more. Thanks for visiting! pic.twitter.com/DUYSLNi3xe— NASA Gourd-dard🎃 (@NASAGoddard) October 25, 2019
Meanwhile, NASA Gourd-dard changed both its picture thumbnail and background picture to that of a Halloweenish-looking star and a carved pumpkin respectively. We are loving these fun changes and are following closely to see if any more should arise before October 31st.
