Twitter revamped its website on Thursday to make the service easier to use and to help companies better showcase their brands.
The company has simplified the design of the web service to make it easier for users to follow what they care about, connect with others and discover something new. The new design is available both on Twitter.com and mobile phones.
Four new tabs bring Twitter users closer to everything they care about.
With the changes, it will be easier to find people and companies with Twitter profiles. All it will take is typing an "at" symbol in front of a user's handle. Entering a subject with a hash tag in front of it will show everything on Twitter related to that topic. And clicking on a specific tweet will display any other exchanges tied to the message to provide further context about the discussion.
Profile pages are also being expanded so individuals and companies can showcase more information about themselves in text, photos and video.
