A few notes on the new design after a quick look and some read tweets:
- The textarea to compose a new tweet has gone from “What are you doing?” to “What’s happening?” to “Compose a new tweet” … #hmmz.
- NewNewTwitter still has these dreadful hashbang urls.
- DMs apparently are not prominent anymore. One reason for this could be fairly low usage? (#3), although I’d like to see some stats confirming this.
- The new Discover tab is all about storytelling, a trend which I’ve applauded before. Still some work to do (it’s nowhere when compared to Storify for example, but the basic idea is there)
The iOS has also been updated to reflect these new changes. Guessing that Twitter for Mac will follow soon.
