Twitter launches a new user interface again

Good news from twitter folks. They have rolled out a new interface!  Yes! a new interface yet again and this time it’s looking quite promising. It’s faster and more consistent. The earlier one was so slow that It made me stop using twitter almost entirely.

As per twitter,

It’s now easier and faster to see the information that matters most to you. Immediately access your favorite features from the lefthand side. Photos, videos and conversations are embedded directly in Tweets so you can see the whole story at a glance. And now everything in Home will appear consistently across computers, iPhones, and Android mobile phones.

The goal of the new UI is to make the microblogging platform faster & simpler to use.  Another stated goal of the new design is to make Twitter’s UX consistent across all platforms, from mobile to desktop. That’s why they have also updated their mobile app UI to match, and released it simultaneously. Twitter feels that this will offer a more cohesive user experience.

I hope the new twitter UI will attract new users as well as those who stopped using it because of speed issues. At least, I’m going back tweeting again!
