Twitter’s new redesign makes the web look more like its mobile apps

Yes, change is coming. Twitter’s announced that it is starting a roll out of a new look desktop site, which takes its design cues from its mobile apps.

Along with a change in the colours, fonts and icons (which now more closely resemble the style adopted by its apps for Android and iOS), the redesigned home screen now brings your cover image to the top left corner, adding a more visual element to a section which was previously text-heavy.

Users can also add an accent colour in the refreshed settings menu to change the colour of the navigation icons and compose tweet box, if they want to customise the look and feel even more.

Twitter redesign before and after

While the desktop site and mobile apps now form part of a cohesive set design-wise, the update doesn’t bring with it any functional changes to Twitter’s site. The update, which is gradually being released to users over the next few days, mainly involves stylistic changes, larger font sizes for section headings and a switch from the previous dark navigation bar to a flat, white design.
