For all those who thought Twitter’s layout was congested and old, here is some good news. Twitter has come up with a new layout that looks very fresh and neat. Introduced last December, it has become an instant hit among the users already. Here are a few new changes listed.
Brand Pages inclusion
Like its competitor Facebook, Twitter has introduced new “brand page” section for business accounts. This feature can help companies interact more with their followers. Companies can use this feature to promote themselves in a big manner. In the coming days, with more changes happening, companies might be able to customize their brand pages with larger logos, images and taglines.
Home page changes
When it comes to functionality, everything remains almost the same. The look of the home page is improved. There are three tabs on the top left side of the home page – Home, @ connect and # discover. While the function of the home page is same as the old one, the functions of other two tabs have changed. @ connect can be used to track the communication you have had with other users. It integrates both mentions and @ replies. Discover function lets you search for relevant trending news and stories around the globe.
This again is a new feature added to Twitter. You will be able to view the list of keyboard shortcuts upon clicking your profile button on the far right. You can compose a new tweet by using “N” and retweet a tweet by just using “T” on your keyboard. You can do all this without having to use the actual boxes. The new tweet window appears right on your page to make it all simpler.
There is a huge change in your profile display front. There is a larger space provided for your name and other details. This can be of great advantage to companies as the brand names will now look larger. There are some quick buttons introduced for followers, following, favorites and lists.
The new photo feature is something that Twitter wanted to incorporate for a long time. Although some developments on photo viewing front had already taken place, this new photo feature makes it easier to share pictures.
The new Twitter design looks cleaner than the old one. These changes can benefit both individual users and companies alike. Twitter’s aim is to make it all simpler and friendly for its users.
