Twitter's New Layout - April 2014

The Top 3 Things to Know About Twitter's New Layout

Plus more!

Yes, it looks very similar to Facebook, which many new and future Twitter users may like. The jury is still out on what frequent Twitter users think, they may not like the 'commercialization' of the new look, a quick Google search, and you will find a lot of blogs talking about it (like this one!). When we speak to business owners, many are not sure how Twitter works or what a hashtag (#) is used for, so I think this new, familiar look will help potential users feel more comfortable using the site.

The major differences:

1. Large cover image at the top vs a smaller header for picture - 1,500 x 500 pixels wide vs 1252 x 626. Yes, you will need to create a new image otherwise, it will look stretched.

2. More popular tweets are a larger font to make it easy for your followers to see and find vs the same font for every tweet

3. Larger profile images vs all the same size

Some other notible Twitter changes:

  • Pin Tweets: You can now "Pin" a tweet (again, similar to Facebook). Just click on the More menu in every tweet (those three dots), and select "Pin to your profile page".
  • "Who to Follow" and "Trends" have moved to the lower right. The popular "trends" list has moved to the bottom right side of your Twitter profile (use to be on the left side).
  • Twitter's "Edit Profile" screen is completely new and improved from previous versions.
  • See detailed description of who you’re following on Twitter, you will see a tiled board (similar to Pinterest) that includes not only the names of everyone you’re following but their profile picture, header photo and bio.
  • The menu of Tweets, Following, Followers, Favorites and Lists are gone. When you post a photo or video, the small checkerboard square of media elements will reappear below your profile picture and description.
  • Twitter will now have pop-up notifications in your web browser anytime someone has replied to, favorited or retweeted one of your tweets while you’re logged into Twitter.com.

Let us know what you think of Twitter's new redesign. Do you like everything? Do you like a few things? Do you like it all?
