Social networking website Twitter, in order to improve the overall user experience has rolled out a new look for its app on iOS, Android and desktop excluding TweetDeck and Twitter Lite which may come later. The micro-blogging platform known is now lighter, faster, and easier to use and it is easily the biggest redesign that the social media platform has seen in a long time.Twitter said that these latest developments are based on the feedback and ideas that came from the Twitter users.
#Twitter users on iOS will now see profile, additional accounts, settings, and privacy in one place. There’s a new side navigation menu that the number of tabs at the bottom of the tab has been reduced as well. “The new tab will ensure less clutter and easier browsing,” Twitter said. Company also said that this feature was released for Android users last year and the users loved it and they expressed it in the feedback so the micro-blogging platform has brought it to iOS.
Twitter has also refined its typography to make it more consistent, and added bolder headlines to make it easier to focus on what’s happening, and also tweets now will update instantly with reply, Retweet, and like counts so people can see conversations as they’re happening in live. More over links to articles and websites will now open in Safari’s viewer in the Twitter app so people can easily access accounts on websites they’re already signed into.People now will also be ableto see additional accessibility choices such as increased colour contrast and the option to always open supported links in Safari Reader view.
However, looks like Twitter at present in the world news cycle appears to be pretty much fixed for a few years at least. Twitter’s major concerned crisis is from trolling and abuse, which better icons and a sleek interface cannot solve. The makeover does not fix everything, but it is certainly aimed at a better direction. And it shows that users can expect more changes soon.
