So Twitter are rolling out the next big change. A proper change, not just a tweak of code, or change of font. A full on update is here. And it looks beautiful. It looks like a big evolutionary step.
Here is the video found on fly.twitter.com
It describes the changes as “The best Twitter ever is loaded with features that make it easier for
you to connect to the people, information and events that matter most to you.”
The preview video certainly looks impressive. It seems as if the second screen experience is going to be made easier and more connected. It seems as if the changes are on just the right scale, nothing too big to scare us all away, it’s a move around of features we’re already using.
mashable.com features this useful screenshot:
The big thing to notice is the #DISCOVER button, placing more emphasis on the idea of hashtags and trending topics. Looks like finding content that’s of interest to you is going to be a lot easier, and may start changing the way we use Twitter in the future.
Of course the mobile platform has received the same update and is available to download now for iPhone and Android.
It’s still early days yet, but it sure looks promising.
