Remember how Twitter rolled out a redesign a few months ago and everyone and their mother cried about it? Well get ready — the company just announced that they’re about to unveil a pretty drastic redesign again.
Today we introduce a new version of Twitter. We’ve simplified the design to make it easier than ever to follow what you care about, connect with others and discover something new. You’ll see this new design both on Twitter.com and mobile phones, so that you’ll have a familiar experience any time, anywhere. We’ve also updated TweetDeck to be consistent with this new version.
We’ll be rolling out the redesigned Twitter over the next few weeks. You can see it immediately on the just-updated versions of mobile.twitter.com, Twitter for iPhone, and Twitter for Android. You can get early access on your computer by downloading and logging into Twitter for iPhone or Twitter for Android. We’re working on updates for other apps, such as Twitter for iPad, and will share news as they become available.
What we’re announcing today is just the beginning. We now have a framework in place that we will quickly build and iterate upon to help users connect with whatever is meaningful to them.
Twitter has set up a site where users can go to preview the changes — as well as download the latest updates for iPhone and Android — and below is a video demo of how it will all look/work.
Personally, I just spent a few minutes playing around with the new Twitter for iPhone and I like it — AND I think it’s looks pretty. So there. Let’s just hope that it works properly.
