Twitter Redesigns Site, Updates iOS and Android Apps With New Look


Social media is certainly getting an overhaul this week. Yesterday, we saw Facebook release a new version of its Android app with new user interface elements. While those were cool changes, they’ve got nothing on the scope of today’s redesign, with Twitter giving its site a fresh new look, and updating its iPhone and Android apps to match.

The theme of Twitter’s new design is one of simplicity. Not only is the company interested in making its user experience as effortless as possible, but also one that’s consistent across all platforms. Things are broken down into Home, Connect, and Discover tabs, each offering different tools to use the service. Home lets you see the tweets of the friends you’re following, complete with in-line pictures and conversations. Connect lets you track mentions and re-tweets, so you can see if your messages are reaching their intended audience. Discover features the latest trending content, and lets you follow hashtags. Beyond those three main tabs, there’s also a profile page that lets you customize your Twitter presence.

No matter where you navigate on Twitter’s site or within one of these updated apps, the new Tweet button lets you quickly get a new message out at a moment’s notice.

Android and iPhone versions of the new Twitter are available now; an iPad update is expected to follow shortly.
