New Twitter changes are being rolled out, and they represent a pretty massive change to the traditional model and interface of the Twitter that millions use every day. The aim is to create a simplified design that will be more consistent across the various platforms that are used to access Twitter these days.
The redesign is pretty major, pushing the main feed over to the right hand side. There are no huge structural changes at the moment, but Twitter is clearly in an experimental mood and has started beefing up the use of small boxes to describe the background to major news events.
Some people might say that there was no need to alter Twitter, but othes would point out that there’s always a need to improve services. There will probably be cries of shock and horror when users log in and are faced with the new Twitter, but it seems that there’s no turning back now.
