Twitter is redesigning its website to make it easier for its millions of users to navigate the service and discover new information.
The re-engineered Twitter.com provides an easier, faster, and richer experience, according to company.
On the site, you?ll see the familiar timeline, yet underneath each Tweet is a handful of information, deeper context and even embedded media. Simply click on an individual Tweet and a details pane slides out on the right and reveals this content.
The new site has a cleaner timeline and a rich details pane that instantly adds more impact to individual Tweets while still maintaining the simplicity of the timeline. And, users are able to experience infinite scroll -- no longer have to click "more" to view additional Tweets.
Embedded photos and videos are also now easier to see directly on Twitter, thanks to partnerships with DailyBooth, DeviantART, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, TwitVid, USTREAM, Vimeo, yfrog, and YouTube.
When users click a Tweet, the details pane shows additional information related to the author or subject. Depending on the Tweet?s content, users now may see: replies, other Tweets by that user, a map of where a geotagged Tweet was sent from, and more.
Mini profiles have been also added. Users may click a username to see a mini profile without navigating from the page, which provides quick access to account information, including bio and recent Tweets.
These changes will roll out as a preview over the next several weeks starting with a very small percentage of registered accounts tonight, Twitter said.
