Twitter is now one of the most popular social networks in the world. Basically, the social networking service allows users to posts messages and interact with them on computer and mobile devices. Twitter has been rolling out updates for its mobile and desktop apps for months in an attempt to improve user experience.
Last year, the social networking service rolled out tools that let users remove abusive content and harassment. In March 2017, Twitter added more tools to fight against abuse, thus protecting its users from hate and harassment.
Twitter today announced a big update that brings a new design to its platform on iOS and desktop app. The update comes with more intuitive user interface and sees the company switch to typography, allowing for more comfortable reading experience.
The update sees a significant change in design. With the update, Twitter has added a new side navigation menu that offers what you have been accustomed to for years including Profile, Settings and Privacy. In reality, the side navigation menu is not something new when it comes to Twitter, as it has been available on its Android app for a while.
Basically, the update has removed the mess that prevents Twitter from getting the perfect score and has improved a lot of what we have loved about Twitter like bigger notification and reply icons. Besides, the update also includes the ability to open links in Safari’s reader mode.
According to Twitter, the company will roll out more design updates in the future in an attempt to attract more users and compete directly with Facebook in the social networking market.
Twitter has long been criticized for being a ground of abusive content and harassment. The social networking service never stops fighting against hate and harassment to win back its users. Twitter now has more than 300 million monthly active users and is among the most visited websites in the world.
