Twitter Gets A Makeover
Posted by pratyushkp
Twitter has unveiled a new design for it websites user interface.
Twitter is all set to tweet a new tune after its user interface has been redesigned to make it more feature rich and attractive to users.
The New Changes Users Will Have To Get Used To Are
Twitter has introduced a dual-panel layout that allows embedded photos and videos, which means pictures and videos will play immediately on the right side of the page, without users needing to open additional tabs or browser windows. Twitter has partnered with 16 media companies, including YouTube, Flickr, TwitPic and Vimeo, to get permission to embed media from those sites onto Twitter.com.
Users can now click on a Tweet, opening up additional information about the tweet in a second panel. For example, if you click the Twitter handle, the right pane will show that person’s mini-profile in the same window. In the past, clicking on the handle would open a new window, forcing users to leave the Twitter timeline.
The feature has been rolled out to select users and will slowly be rolled to other users by the end of this month.
