You Should Switch to the New Twitter “Very, Very Soon”

Author:

If you are still using the old Twitter set up, then most likely you’ve seen the announcement at the top of the page that says “You will automatically be upgraded to the new Twitter very, very soon”. It looks like this.


Twitter introduced the “New Twitter” nine months ago and although some people are complaining about the change and dragging their feet a little on coming over to the dark side, most are okay with the new set up.

What twitter means by “very, very soon” no one knows. It could be tomorrow (highly unlikely) or it could be weeks away.

If you haven’t made the switch yet, Twitter has an introductory video called “Meet the new Twitter”. You can view it here. Here’s how Twitter describes the new design:

You will now find @mentions, retweets, searches, and lists just above your timeline – creating a single, streamlined view on the left of the screen. On the right, you can see the features you’re familiar with, including whom you recently followed and who recently followed you, favorites, and Trending Topics.

Have you made the switch to the New Twitter yet? If so, how does it compare to the old design?

    Problem here is Twitter has not solved the blank screen problem many users have been experiencing in new twitter for months – what happens to those people when the old twitter goes??
