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.
Twitter has updated the official Twitter For Mac application with a number of new features, including expandable timelines, plus a revised design that brings the product into line with its other apps.
Twitter’s direct message (DM) system has always been a little bit, well, rubbish – it has few features and also a strange 160-character limit that confuses a lot of newcomers.
Good news! As of yesterday the platform has had a small upgrade, as you can now… wait for it… send and view photos within DMs.
Perhaps a sign of the Twitter IPO’s subtle effects on the company’s future direction, Twitter has updated its Twitter.com homepage, tweaking the visual design and welcome text that people see when first encountering the service, reports AllThingsD.
The new landing page is more practical rather than aesthetically driven. Take a look at the changes, below.
