Twitter's website now looks like its iOS and Android apps

Don’t look now, Twitter’s changing. Don’t be too surprised when you catch the micro-blogging site looking different today. Twitter has announced that it is rolling out a revamped experience on its website starting today, and it will reflect the look and feel of its Android and iOS applications.


Twitter made a brief announcement regarding the change in look via a tweet with an image attached. Not much has been revealed by the micro-blogging website, but you will notice that a mini profile snapshot will now appear on the Home page too. Your cover image too will now be visible, besides your tweet, follower and following count.


The navigation bar is now a different style and colour than the one we’ve been used to seeing and reflect the changes that were brought along when Twitter updated its apps for iOS and Android. The black bar is now white and the tabs to switch between Home, Connect, Discover and Me don a whole new look. The colour scheme of the website has essentially gone from being black and blue to white, grey and blue.


Not just this, certain icons too have found a refresh. The Direct Message icon, Settings and Compose New Tweet now look pretty much like the ones you see on the application. The fonts too have found a slight tweak and are a lot larger than before.


Some things, however, Twitter has chosen to keep constant. Photo previews are still around, and while it hasn’t been displayed in the screenshot by Twitter, the blue line that threads conversations together doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. The changes are reflective of the massive update Twitter for Android and iOS received late last year in December.


The website update is a rollout, so if you’re still seeing the older website, you should see the new one sometime soon.
