Twitter UI updateIt was a night filled with work, mostly like every other night. I was sitting and doing my regular sharing / posting on twitter. All of a sudden my updates weren’t refreshing, I couldn’t navigate backwards or forward, I couldn’t click any links either. So the good old F5 (Command + R on the beloved MAC) had to come to the rescue.

What appeared infront of my eyes next was nothing less than mindblowing. At first I though I had been forwarded to a different website, but after a scouple of seconds I realized I had just witnessed a massive Twitter upgrade. Not only did they run this massive UI upgrade on their website, they also upgraded the apps for Android and iPhone users.Even though I had anticipated the update for quite some time, I didn’t expect it to come this fast. I am really impressed with the work the twitter team has done. The UI is a lot more user friendly and more importantly it is so much easier to navigate.

I’m not going to go into detail about all the new functionality and technical improvements, it’s all very well documented on the twitter homepage. To give you a little head start you can go to the official twitter page and read more about hte upgrade right now. I’ve summarized some of the main features  below.

Home is where you view Tweets from the people you have chosen to follow. It’s your personal collection of Tweets, featuring the latest news, commentary and information from the sources you care about.

The new Connect section is where you get in on the conversation. It’s the place to see who has followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets. Connect is your way to keep the conversation flowing.

When you use Discover, you’ll see results reflecting your interests—based on your current location, what you follow and what’s happening in the world. As you use Twitter more, Discover gets even better at serving up more content just for you.

The new profile section puts you and your interests front and center. Others can Tweet directly to you and view your lists, favorites, followers, photos and more. The Me tab is also where you can stay current on your direct message conversations.

Twitter really has it going now and we’re looking forward to some really exciting times in the battle between the social media giants. I have to be honest with you. This twitter upgrade has impressed me far more than the Facebook timeline implementation.
