Today Twitter has announced a radical redesign of profiles that the company hopes will help them both attract and retain new users to the service.
While Facebook-like in styling, the new Twitter profiles are significantly slicker in both look and feel than they’ve ever been before, with a greater emphasis being made on photos and popular tweets.
Have you seen the new Twitter?
No, not that new Twitter. That’s so four weeks ago. This new Twitter. You know, the one that looks a bit like Facebook.
Logitech is seeing Microsoft’s Artist Series of mobile mice and raising them a serious dose of designer tech.
The new Logitech Wireless Mouse M325 Eye Candy collection of mice features four different designs with their own unique aesthetic touches.
The coolest of the bunch? The Twitter-inspired “Tweet Tweet” design.
Twitter has rolled out a redesign of its official blog, which is quite a departure from the previous look, with the new design perhaps more befitting of the social micro-blogging network.
Or maybe it looks more like the default writing theme that comes with (or is easily downloadable for) many blogging platforms? You be the judge.
Halloween (or Hallowe’en or All Hallows’ Eve, depending on where you are) is celebrated in some capacity (with a few notable exceptions) in almost every major country around the world, and carving pumpkins into spooky Jack-o’-lanterns is a very popular pursuit that dates back centuries.
Indeed, some people take it all very seriously indeed, and one can be both humbled by some of the amazing creations you see on the interwebs, and invigorated by many of the disasters.
In a post on their blog, Twitter has unveiled a new design for the company’s bird logo.

Earlier today Twitter unveiled a huge redesign of the Twitter.com homepage – we’ve covered these changes in detail here, here and here. Essentially, it’s a complete top-to-bottom revamp, and also includes UI reboots of TweetDeck, plus the official iPhone and Android apps.
So far, the switch has had a mixed reaction from users – people are rarely happy with change, especially when it’s so dramatic – and some folks have had trouble finding some familiar features. For example, where are your Direct Messages?
Twitter is experimenting with a timeline revamp on Twitter.com, which includes additional features such as threaded conversations and expandable tweets, reports TechCrunch.
The new design has been made available to a small subset of users, and it’s not clear whether this is something that Twitter is just testing, or planning to roll out to everybody.
Ever since Twitter open its doors way back in July 2006, the Twitter.com homepage has gone through many different design and interface changes. And as recently as this August, everybody was upgraded to the controversial New Twitter, with all of its bells and whistles, nooks and crannies, whether they liked it or not.
But five years is a long time. What did Twitter look like way back when?
