How do you like Twitter's new look?

nchristine

When I logged on to Twitter this morning to tweet about my bagel choice for the morning (just kidding), I thought that I was on the wrong site for a moment. It looked like Facebook, actually. What do you think about the new look? Does it indicate a substantive change at Twitter, or is it just window dressing?

I'd like to say that I really cared, but I don't. I don't use Twitter very often, it's filled with too much babble. I find it to be mostly a huge waste of time.

I can understand them trying to follow in Facebook's footsteps to a certain degree, given the success that company has had. But changing the interface won't make the content more appealing to me though perhaps others will disagree.

I thought it looked like I had accidentally opened Facebook too when I first logged onto Twitter after the change.  But I think the bigger part of the change is to the new Twitter app that goes along with the larger site changes, which includes user photo streams.  I think they are trying to make Twitter more than a place for impulsive posts that you later regret.  :-o
