Twitter releases sneak peek of new layout
Over the last week or so Twitter has been rolling out invitations to a sample of users, offering a sneak peek at the new Twitter layout for desktop. Curiosity got the better of us so we investigated.
The new layout promises a whole host of new features, but the most notable was that the side navigation moved from the left to the right, which in their words was to ‘reflect the look and feel of our iOS and Android apps’.
The homepage is simplified and you’ll now find ‘who to follow’, ‘trends’ and a Tweet button that scrolls with you, making it easier to compose a message. The full menu options slide in from the right when you click your profile button, rather than the previous drop down.
The profile page has had a rejig too, with the banner/cover image reduced in size and an image grid to the right.
All in all it’s a pretty neat update, and it certainly does it’s job of bringing together a look and feel of the mobile version, simplifying it at the same time. Big thumbs up from us!
