Twitter unveils new look, which users quickly mock

Twitter is freshening up its look, announcing a new interface now rolling out to iOS, Android and web users of the social media platform. He has also developed tools to monitor brands' early adoption of live-streaming apps, compare Yahoo's and Google's search designs and examine the NFL's YouTube and Facebook video strategies.

The redesign is certainly not going to be to everyone's taste. This has been the setup on Android for some time, but will now appear on iOS.

The most significant change to the iOS app is the existence of a new sidebar menu that pops out from the left side of the screen. The new side navigation menu includes all the contents of the "Me" tab as well as the app and account settings. It has introduced a number of subtle changes - many of which, most users probably won't notice.

While appearing on "Fox and Friends" Desantis described the odd encounter that occurred minutes before the incident. DeSantis noted the threats he has received have grown uglier since President Trump took office.

The new changes include circular profile pictures, replacing the reply arrow icon with a speech bubble, and real-time reply, like and retweet updating.

A look at the new changes on Twitter. Further, Twitter has updated typography to make it more consistent.

Also coming to iOS users is support for the Safari viewer. This is a huge and much needed change. Finally, new intuitive icons have been designed and additional accessibility options are available, such as increased color contrast. This means that you can track how a tweet is doing in real time. It's still a blown up iPhone UI, and there's a whole lot of white wasted space in the app, especially in the landscape view. Despite now having 328 million users, thanks in part to Trump's tweeting, Twitter still lags behind rivals Facebook, which counts almost 2 billion users, and Facebook-owned Instagram, with its 700 million users. Have you not tried iOS 11 on an iPad? We've been using it, getting used to it, and not throwing tantrums about its freshness. Those beta testing the app should see the design changes today. Previously, website links opened with Twitter's in-app browser, as pointed out by The Verge.
