Twitter redesign looks an awful lot like Facebook
When Twitter redesigns things and tinkers with the format, there's a usual chorus of booing and hissing from users. The conversation 'blue lines' and the recent rejig saw everyone vomiting blood with pure, unswerving hatred.
It seems, the simpler Twitter is, the more people like it. However, when companies want to make a decent amount of money out of something, they have to poke around a bit and try and work out ways of making the whole thing more profitable.
And there's a new redesign on the way that could see some spectacular crying from Twitter users, mainly because the social network could end up looking like Facebook.
As you can see, the new layout shoves your profile photo and bio to the left and, down the middle, will be a revamped timeline that again, reeks of Zuckerberg. It also has a sniff of Pinterest about it, but only mental cat spinsters use that.
Twitter will be getting jumpy because their first financial results after its IPO were pretty lousy. Usually, redesigns are a way of working out how to make adverts nicer and more noticeable in a busy timeline.
Someone make a clone of Twitter, the way it was a couple of years ago, and you just might make yourself a crapload of money if everyone starts sulking and jumping ship.
