Time’s Up, Old Twitter Fans – You Will Automatically Be Upgraded To #NewTwitter “Very, Very Soon”

Back in September 2010 when Twitter first announced a drastic redesign of the homepage, many users of the service weren’t happy.

Twitter recognised that everybody wasn’t read to immediately switch over to ‘New Twitter’, and so they provided a temporary way roll back to the old version via the dropdown menu under your username on

Well, those days are number, as a new warning on the old-style tells users that any time now everybody is going to be upgraded to Twitter, and that it’s coming ‘very, very soon’.

Here’s a screen grab from the old-look

As you can see, there’s a very clear warning message at the top of the page, which reads, “You will automatically be upgraded to New Twitter very, very soon”, alongside a button that encourages you to “Switch to New Twitter now!”.

So, you can either do this immediately, or hold on for a few more precious days. There’s no official word on when exactly Twitter is pulling the lever, but I’d be expecting an announcement (likely on the official blog) when this has happened. Not that you won’t have noticed.

For the sake of nostalgia, and to preserve this period of history, here’s a couple of full screen captures from old style Twitter. Don’t get all misty-eyed on me.
