Posted on the 12 December 2011 by Jesusmsanchezl @JesusmSanchezl

Twitter Bird LogoTwitter revamped its website last Thursday to make it easier to use and to help companies to better show their brands.

With this new look in both design and functionality,  it is expected to facilitate the task of finding interesting content on the service.

Also, technological improvements will also come. According to the firm, they will increase the speed of service.

The roll-out will be done over the next few weeks, Twitter’s new design aims to simplify things a bit with four prominent tabs: Home, Connect, Discover and Me. One important point is that the Look&Feel will be consistent across Twitter’s standard website, mobile apps and TweetDeck desktop software. This is done with the purpose of giving the user the sensation of being in the same app no matter what device/service is using.

Check out how twitter will look like in few weeks in the following images:

Home: “See Tweets from all the accounts you follow. Tweets can now expand to show more information such as replies, retweets and embedded photos and videos.”
Connect: “See all the Tweets in which you are mentioned in one place, so you can keep the conversation going.”
Discover - Stories
Discover: “Stories and trends content trending in your world based on recent popularity as well as your connections, location and language.”
