Twitter has started to roll out a new redesigned Twitter.com – a refreshed and updated website that is faster, easier to navigate and more personalized adopting some of its best features from mobile to desktop.
The site has an updated look and feel that is more consistent with the Twitter you see on other devices, making it easier to access some of your features, and with more options to make it your own. No edit button yet, Twitter's yet to decide if that's important or not.
They have redesigned the website based on the following pillars:
More of What’s Happening: Twitter has brought over Explore to bring you the content found in the apps; expect more live video and local moments depending on your location. Get context with profile information within conversations and check out your Top Trends.
Easy Access to Your Favorite Features: Bookmarks, Lists, and your Profile are right up front and have their own spot on the side navigation, making it easier and faster to jump between different tabs.
Direct Messages All in One Place: Direct Messages have been expanded so you can see your conversations and send messages all from the same view. Now there’s less hassle switching between screens to send a message.
Login, Logout Struggle No More: Whether you have one profile or a few, now you’re also able to switch between accounts faster, directly from the side navigation.
Make Twitter Yours: The love is real for dark mode themes. Twitter heard that usersasked for even more ways to personalize Twitter so they're bringing you different themes and color options, along with two options for dark mode.
Today is a big step as Twitter continues to be in relevance more than ever. Initial reactions to the redesign have generally been unfavorable and personally I'm not a fan either however, I guess that's familiarity breeding contempt and we're usually not well versed with change.
If you're not a fan of the redesgin there's always Tweetdeck and Tweeten.
