Twitter unveils new redesign to further push content discovery
Twitter has updated thier design once again. I guess you can call it the New New Twitter (#newnewtwitter). Initially in October when the redesign was leaked, I wasn’t a very big fan of it. It just didn’t make a lot of sense, but you have to take leaks with a grain of salt as they are an unfinished product and don’t tell the whole story.
Well today, Twitter unveiled their new design. Special thanks to Sean Percival who made me aware of it. You can get the new version now by updating your iOS or Android apps. The new version has yet to hit desktops, but expect that soon.
After using the new design (on mobile), it’s very slick and well designed. So far, I am really pleased with it and take back my previous comments, for now at least. I imagine the desktop UX will be similar as well.
Here is the New New Twitter on desktop which I am now using. Looks like Twitter is rolling it out slowly. If you don’t have it yet, try logging out and logging back in. If that doesn’t get you the newer version, try this, which I am not sure if it’s coincidental or not; but click on your “recent images” on the right side of the page when viewing your profile and then go back to the home page. I did that and had the newer version after.
