Twitter Gets a Facelift: 7 Changes and 1 Similarity to Note
Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) announced on its official blog that its new redesign is out for a select group of users — mostly new users. Some high-profile users, like First Lady Michelle Obama and rock band Weezer, also have the new version, if you want a peek at what your Twitter feed is going to look like in the near future. The blog post claims that the redesign was done to make Twitter easier to use and more accessible. We’ve noted some key changes in the new design, as well as one similarity.
1. Yes, it looks more like Facebook
One of the top complaints about Twitter lately is that the social media outlet is trying to be more like Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). Those critics will have more to kvetch about, since the new Twitter profile design does resemble a Facebook profile page.
2. Photos are bigger
This is another Facebook-like change, but not necessarily a bad one. The larger photos draw more attention to the graphics.
