twitter quill

Twitter just unveiled a major redesign, aimed at simplifying the interface and attracting new users to the popular social network. It’s a top-top-bottom change, revamping the website, mobile apps, and even TweetDeck, the company’s social-network integrator software. The new look for the site is rolling out slowly, but anyone with an iPhone or Android device can check out the new Twitter right now.

With the goal of giving users a familiar experience no matter what device they’re on, the new Twitter has four universal buttons: Home, with your familiar feed; Connect, where you can see all your @replies and mentions; Discover, the place to check out trending topics and search hashtags; and Me, where you can dive deeper into your profile.

On top of that, the user interface has been given a makeover, with the pen in new Tweet button taking the form of a quill — a clever nod to Larry, the bird in Twitter’s logo.

If you don’t have the new look yet, you can browse the redesigned iPhone app in the gallery below.
