Twitter for Web's Massive Redesign Is Now Rolling Out to All Users

"Internally, we call this project 'Delight.' One of the things we're trying to do is make sure this is a delightful experience for users". There's certainly a lot to like, but the fact that the new look is not optional is likely to grate with some users. In their place is a vertical sidebar that lets you access different Twitter features, including your notifications, messages, and bookmarks, but with no mention of your follower count.

Product of an exhaustive testing regime which drew hundreds of thousands of responses from Twitter users these changes boil down to a handful of overarching functions namely carrying over the Explore tool from its apps to make finding content easier and offering easier access to favourite features.

Tapping on the messages icon from that left sidebar opens a redesigned home for Direct Messages.

Users will now also be able to more easily switch between accounts by choosing the handle they want to use by clicking on the side bar. You can set these themes, font size, and the default colour of your twitter account by the options I show you in the screenshot below.

Indonesia's meteorology agency (BMKG) recorded the quake at magnitude 7.2 and said it was not in danger of causing a tsunami . It had occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers with its epicenter located inland, North of Ternate city.

Direct Messages now have a larger view, allowing you to respond to messages and see your various conversations on the same screen.

Twitter is undoubtedly the most useful platform for publishers, advertisers, celebrities and all. No matter whether you liked it or not, you have to get used to this new design of Twitter on your desktop as there's no way to use the older design.

Twitter has begun rolling out its overhauled desktop interface for web browsers, which includes a number of new features. Instead of featuring menu items at the top of the page, it moves them to the left like in the mobile app. According to Twitter, the updated desktop interface will make it easier for users to navigate the site better, while more customisation options are now available. The first one, called 'Dim', is a greyish theme that most people would opt for, but there's also a 'Lights Out' option for people preferring a pitch dark theme.
