Twitter has rolled out a new look for the Web, Apps, TweetDeck and Twitter Lite. However, when Twitter did some changes in the short-messaging service in the past, it did not go well with the users. Now, the company is saying that the latest design focuses on simplicity. They have made it easier and faster to use along with many more intuitive icons and bolder headlines.
The company explains in a blog post while launching the latest design that they have listened closely to our reviews and kept what we actually love. Twitter has made it very clear that the new user interface will start rolling out on twitter.com, Twitter for iOS, Twitter Lite, TweetDeck as well as Twitter for Android very soon in the upcoming week.
In their own words, “Today, with lots of feedback and ideas from you, we’re refreshing our product too and making it feel lighter, faster, and easier to use. We listened closely and kept what you love. On its apps and TweetDeck, tweets will “now update instantly with a reply, Retweet, and like counts so you can see conversations as they’re happening.”
After the current update, the users tweeted critical memes and jokes about the changes made. About 30,000 users expressed their view through tweets regarding the UI or new user interface in just a few hours of the change. Most of them were basically mocking or complaining about the latest look change. The most popular meme became a round SpongeBob SquarePants image.
Users were also disappointed when the previous year the company changed the tweets algorithm order. Not only this, Twitteratis showed their displeasure once more when the company announced its Moments feature and got rid of the star icon. They signified ‘favorite’ tweet in favor of a heart icon just like Facebook’s ‘like’ option.
Twitter’s new formula by the latest revamp is to give a fresh look to the messaging service that has struggled to attract new users like they have on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Twitter’s revenue is not going well for years now and just because of this reason, they have cut costs.
