Twitter Rolls Out New Design
By James Lenhart

On Thursday, Twitter began rolling out a new design to the masses that should benefit most users and businesses. We’re positive that people will rise against the change, but it’s not like this hasn’t happened before. The new version of Twitter will feature the ability to highlight videos and photos that the user has Tweeted in the past. Currently, Twitter profile pages consist of a timeline that changes as Tweets are published.

Social networks like Google+ and Facebook have brought on new changes to the industry that mimic some fundamentals of Twitter, which is why Twitter must do something to stay on the “cutting-edge”. People use Twitter to micro-blog and that’s their main success, however, the existing profile page doesn’t do them much justice. People want to showcase items on their page so they can share them with others.

One of the best things about Twitter is the fact that they are the most simple social network out there. It doesn’t take very long to understand mentions, re-tweets, dm’s, etc. They have a good thing going as long as they keep it simple — yet advanced.

I’ve not got a chance a to play with the new design (hasn’t reached me yet), but when I do you’ll be the first to know.
