The New Twitter is Here
The New Twitter is Here

Twitter is trying to simplify its platform so they can capture users who have been having trouble understanding how Twitter works. Their first major change has been to the layout, which surprisingly, makes it look like Facebook. Good move? Bad move? While I don’t think it’s a bad change, I do think it’s pretty uninspired….
