Twitter desktop version began to launch. This redesign brings additional features such as a special page for bookmarking and browsing topics.
Quoting The Washington Post, Saturday (07/20/2019), Twitter said that the refreshed website is faster, easier to navigate, and personal. In fact, the latest desktop versions are said to be more similar to those on mobile.
The new desktop version
The site is dominated by a white background and thin margins, and the 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, such as e-mail inboxes. Now, users can also choose the second dark mode that is closer to black than gray.
Changes to the interface on Twitter appear when social networking gets deep criticism about how it 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 hateful language. A ban on inhuman language, said Twitter, will be extended to other groups of people.
