Twitter’s revamped website is coming to a desktop near you

Twitter is rolling out a revamped version of its website to a lucky few across the globe.

Appropriately, the social network announced the revision’s graduation via a tweet.

The rework is primarily visual, with tweets now occupying the left-hand side column. A new right-hand side column houses trends, follow suggestions and more.

A top bar now also hosts a dedicated emoji button within the tweet box, the search bar, and profile drop down menu.

Overall, it looks a whole lot cleaner than the current layout.

The revision is currently opt-in and is only available to a select few, but the company confirms that a host of other features are also incoming.

“We’re excited about this. Here are other improvements you’ll be able to enjoy soon: easily switching between your accounts, faster load times, and cropping your image before you tweet it,” noted Twitter Support in a tweet.

And in case you’re wondering: no, there’s still no edit button.
