Twitter Rolls Out Fresh New Look

Twitter New Look

As many will have already noticed, Twitter has started rolling out a fresh new design to its 328m monthly active users.

Aside from the updated look and feel, the biggest change comes with the rearranging of the menus.

The company has moved the profile, settings, privacy and additional accounts sections to a left hand side navigation menu, which you can access by swiping right.

This was rolled out on Android last June, and is now being brought over to iOS after a positive response.

This means fewer tabs at the bottom of the screen – this menu now housing the home feed, search, notifications and direct message sections.

Twitter will now also update in real time, with retweets, replies and likes getting updated instantly as they happen.

Other changes include switching the arrow reply button with a new speech bubble, a minor change interpreted as an accommodation for new users, and circular profile pictures.

In addition to this, any links to articles and websites in the Twitter app will also open within the Safari viewer, making it easier to “access accounts on websites you’re already signed into.”

This also means that any users running a Safari ad-blocker will now have ads blocked when they open an article link from Twitter.

The changes are rolling out across, Twitter for iOS, Twitter for Android, TweetDeck, and Twitter Lite over the coming days and weeks.
