After some general browsing of Facebook this morning, I took to my Twitter browsing. I manage a few Twitter accounts (and would usually use TweetDeck for this) and had left myself signed in on our student newspaper’s Twitter account. When it loaded up however, I had noticed that they had updated the look of the website (unfortunately my account doesn’t seem to have received the new design yet).
Modern UI design is the way forward.
I usually keep out of touch with news that isn’t related to Windows Phone so I didn’t even realise that Twitter were updating their design but I’m glad they did. Having played around with Twitter’s new design, it doesn’t feel too different and won’t confuse its users unlike the updates that happen to Facebook. It just looks modern now.
Hopefully this rollout of the new design to all Twitter users won’t take as long as the rollout of Facebook’s new interface is which I would rather much like to have now. While there aren’t many social media apps that have both a mobile app and website, I like when they have design consistencies across both.
