There we said it. That’s all you need to take from this post. But in case you need more details on the much anticipated Twitter redesign, then read on.
Twitter has decided on a radical redesign that offers a more streamlined view of tweets and, guess what, there’s no going back. Once you get it on your screen, that’s it.
How does it look like? First of all, everything feels a little bit out of place. But if you’re used to accessing Twitter on your iPhone, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised. More specifically, the new Twitter design resembles the mobile design with all elements blown up. That means that what users would traditionally find in a ‘burger’ menu is now available in full sight on the desktop layout.
In other words, main navigation will be on the left-hand side of the new website and trending topics, along with the search panel will be on the right-hand side. The main navigation menu offers a streamlined view and handling of replies and direct messages. Speaking of the latter, which will no longer pop up, but, instead, redirect you to a dedicated inbox section. Just like mobile!
The sparkle button is there if you want to go back and forth to a chronological timeline. Dark mode, check. While we’re all very excited about the upcoming changes, Twitter still hasn’t honoured our persistent request for an ‘Edit’ button. Oh well, we can’t have it all!
The new design is already rolling out to a few select users, but it will take a few more weeks (months?) until it’s available worldwide
