Twitter Website Redesign: What’s New?
Twitter began launching redesign for its desktop website. This redesign brings additional features such as a special page for bookmarking and browsing topics.
As quoted from The Washington Post, Saturday (07/20/2019), Twitter said that the new website is faster, easier to navigate, and even more personal. In fact, the latest desktop versions are said to be more similar to those on mobile version.
The site is dominated by white background and thin margins, and home display is divided into three columns. One is for navigation, with icons that bring users to special pages such as lists, direct messages (DM), and notifications.
According to Twitter, the DM page has been expanded, so users can read conversations and send messages from the same view, just like in e-mail inboxes. Now, users can also opt for the second dark mode that is closer to black than gray called “Lights Out”.
Changes to the interface on Twitter was caused by criticism about how Twitter works. Like Facebook and Google, Twitter has come under fire from critics including the president, parliamentarians, academic researchers, and advocates for women and minority groups.
Before changing the interface, Twitter earlier this month also renewed its policy regarding hate speech. Hate speech ban will roll out as time goes on.
