New Twitter Redesign

If you hadn’t noticed already, Twitter has switched around the CSS some more. It seems like it’s been only 2 months since the last iteration of Twitter’s design — which we had to wait ages for — but they’re not making us wait long for this one. The new design is being rolled out across all platforms today: Android, iPhone, Desktop, and Mobile.

Profile pages seem to be the most notable change, with all of the content flip-flopped and a larger header including all of your stats and about me. Twitter is also taking a focus on inline content as you browse the feed. Youtube video links will automatically become recognized as such, and transform into a player for viewing right in the feed — not in a sidebar. Any time there’s inline content to display, you’ll be greeted with a link that says, “View Media” “View Song” or “View Photo”.

The top left navigation has three tabs to focus on your @replies and hash-tags, removing the standard four links we’re all so used to using (Home, Mentions, Favs, Msgs). You can still get to your profile, settings, and the new tweet link on the right side. Browsing through the profile menu, I also noticed a link to keyboard shortcuts. You may want to give them a try; they’re quite useful!

So there’s a quick rundown of the desktop version. I suggest you check the rest out by yourself! You can follow me: @nathaniel_h.
