A sneak peek into the new twitter!
Twitter has been revamped yet again!
Here is what twitter’s official blog had to say:
“Today we introduce a new version of Twitter. We’ve simplified the design to make it easier than ever to follow what you care about, connect with others and discover something new. You’ll see this new design both on Twitter.com and mobile phones, so that you’ll have a familiar experience any time, anywhere. We’ve also updated TweetDeck to be consistent with this new version.
Four new tabs bring you instantly closer to everything you care about. Visit fly.twitter.com to learn more about the changes.
We’ll be rolling out the redesigned Twitter over the next few weeks. You can see it immediately on the just-updated versions of mobile.twitter.com, Twitter for iPhone, and Twitter for Android. You can get early access on your computer by downloading and logging into Twitter for iPhone or Twitter for Android. We’re working on updates for other apps, such as Twitter for iPad, and will share news as they become available.
What we’re announcing today is just the beginning. We now have a framework in place that we will quickly build and iterate upon to help users connect with whatever is meaningful to them.
Here is how the new twitter looks!
The things on the right have shifted to the left and the things on the left have shifted to the right. That’s like talking in the broad noob sense.
In the details of things, the mentions has now changed to @connect. Here is a screen shot of the same:
Now the @connect page consists of two parts in the broad sense.
The Interactions displays what you used to see when the beta version or rather the previous revamped version was released i.e. all the mentions and the recent people who followed you.
The Mentions tab shows just the mentions just as the mentions page used to be when the basic twitter was in existence. Just the mentions and nothing else.
Another thing worth noticing is that the “Who to follow” remains both on the homepage and in the connect page as well.
Coming to the biggest and the best change that the new twitter has!
The Discover Tab
Now this is one tab which will help a number of bloggers out there because for this basically is the ‘media center’ on twitter. It has links to the trending posts on certain websites, the trending images and the trending stories. All of this is under the ‘Stories’ tab!
The discover tab also consists of suggestions of who to follow, people you are following recently followed whom (which was a feature in the previous version as well)
Then there is “Browse categories” option which allows you to search for people from different fields who you would like to fall!
Here is a screen shot of the Discover Tab:
That’s the basic revamp folk. The stories tab is the big change that I personally loved!
We will write/update the post if and when we find anything new.
As of now, apart from the stories tab, it’s basically switching things around, from one tab to another and that’s just about it!
