Logged in to Twitter and found an altogether fresh layout? No worries, it is actually the latest redesign of the microblogging website.
On Tuesday, Twitter rolled out a fresh User Interface designed which offers a lighter and compact look. The design, however, doesn’t appear to every Twitterati.
The home page of the website has three columns with the leftmost column devoted options which would otherwise be at the top, such as, Home, Moments, Notifications, Messages. Options like Lists, Bookmarks and Explore are also visible in the leftmost column. The second column, as usual shows the timeline. While the last one-third part of the page showing the Trending Topics.
