It’s been a crazy day, so I decided to pop into Twitter to tap the conversation of the moment. As is often the case, it was crawling and practically unusable – more so than usual. When I refreshed however, I was greeted by a pleasant surprise, Twitter 2.0.
The new dashboard has been subtly streamlined and polished, providing a nice overview of stats, update preferences, contacts, and a new text dialog box with a stylish new counter for the infamous “140.” It also includes a tab to view individual contact updates or the steam of updates from the person’s group stream.
Some reactions on Twitter thus far:
ChrisSaad Twitter UI Upgrade is really lackluster – you would think with all the attention and tallent they could do something more inspired.
rexhammock Did I miss the announcement of a new Twitter interface? Counting-down characters. tweaks in right-hand column.
jquig99 Wow – look at all the Twitter changes…
jspepper Both Twitter and GMail update their UIs – coincidence?!!? I think not.
arielwaldman Question: Is Twitter slow right now because of the redesign or is it slow because of something unrelated?
duncanriley ok, now I see it. sidebar is different, different font etc looks good
