Twitter’s New Web Interface Is Rolling Out To More Users
Brian|Jan. 24, 2019
Last year, Twitter started testing out a new interface for the web. This new interface was to bring some new features including Explore and Bookmarks to the web. At the time, the company was still testing it out and months later it is giving more users access to this new design.
This new web interface is very different from what we have had on the platform for years and you will either love it or hate it. Twitter says this interface features a cleaner, simplified and more modern look. This updated interface also brings with it a new emoji button for users who prefer expressing themselves using emojis.
With this new interface, the trending section moves to the right of the timeline from the left. Moving it there leaves a two-column design and not the three-column one we had before. I have also spotted a data saving option which you can easily access from any page by just tapping on your profile picture at the top right corner.
Twitter isn’t just focusing on the looks with this new interface, the company is more interested in the user experience that has not been a key focus when it comes to Twitter for web. The older version felt dated and was not welcoming for those who were used to its mobile apps.
