Twitter Unveils “Shiny New” Design

Twitter has started rolling out its first significant redesign for desktops in almost seven years.

The social media platform says it’s all about giving users a more personalised experience as well as bringing in some new features in the spacious redesign.

Users still can’t edit Tweets (which has long been requested), however, the update will allow users to see all their direct messages in one screen, check out top trends in any view, access bookmarks and lists in the side navigation and personalise their feed with different themes and colour options, including two dark modes for desktop.

“Today is a big step as we continue building Twitter to best serve the people who use it every day,” said the company in a blogpost.

“This update also gives us a much stronger foundation to build on so we can continue to bring you updated features faster than before.”

Twitter claims the redesign has all been about listening to user feedback, as can be seen in this promotional video.

But Twitter did in fact take the time to listen to its users, creating a survey to give users their say about the redesign. The survey was filled out 200,000 times.

This led to some more subtle yet fun new features, such as an emoji picker in the desktop version.

The latest aesthetic changes come as Twitter adjusts some of its broader policies to deal with problems around hate speech and fake news.
