Thanks to tons of feedback from the community, Twitter is now lighter, faster, and easier to use, along with several changes that would make your experience a lot better.
Here are a few things that you can expect to be rolled out for Twitter in iOS and Android, as well as Twitter Lite:
For iOS users, your Profile, additional accounts, settings, and privacy settings are now all in one place! There’s also a new side navigation menu and fewer tabs at the bottom of the app.
Links to articles and websites will now be opened in Safari’s viewer in the Twitter app, making it easier to access accounts on websites you’re already signed into.
The typography has been refined to make it more consistent, and bolder headlines have also been added to make it easier to focus on what’s happening. Moreover, rounded profile photos make it clearer to see what’s being said and who’s saying it.
Twitter now uses more intuitive icons, making it easier to engage with Tweets especially for first-time users. The reply icon for example, has been changed to a speech bubble, a symbol most know and love. Icons are now even lighter for more seamless interaction.
Tweets now update instantly with reply, Retweet, and like counts so you can see in real time, conversations as they’re happening. You’ll also see additional accessibility choices such as increased color contrast and an option to always open supported links in Safari Reader view.
