Whenever a major website is redesigned, users are always up in arms saying that it doesn’t quite feel the same. So is the revamped Twitter experience proving popular wit the millions of ‘Tweeters’, or has it been a flop?
Well, the general consensus at the moment appears to be a big thumbs-up from users who are hailing it a massive improvement. The desktop site now looks more like the mobile version, while the navigation bar on the left places more important sections more easily to hand.
Useful options are no longer hidden behind the Profile icon, although fans of ‘Moments’ do now have to open the ‘More’ menu . Also, now the ‘Explore’ option, which combines hashtags, live video and trending stories, gains greater prominence. If your someone with multiple accounts, then switching profiles is easier then ever too.
The improved Messages section lets you see your conversations in a list and view your sent messages.
Select ‘More’ and choose ‘Display’ to try two new dark modes as well as other customisation options.
Click the sparkle icon and, as with the mobile version, you can view tweets in chronological order.
The decision to place bookmarks in the side navigation panel should ensure more people use this feature.
