Twitter Changed Home Page Design

Twitter changed the home page design again. The new new version of its homepage is very cleaner, sleek and features trending topics by the minute, shows trending topics, popular users and more.

In new version search functionality is place on front and center of the header with bigger size. Now search is more visible and easily accessible to everyone. This way people who aren’t even Twitter users yet can search for things being said on the service. And results are nicely placed on the same page below the main area.

The homepage now features a set of algorithmically-selected top tweets that automatically appear every few seconds. It also highlights a random sampling of suggested sources; hover over any of them to see a profile summary and their latest tweet.

Twitter explains their design decisions for the new homepage:

“All of our recent changes embrace the notion that Twitter is not just for status updates anymore. It’s a network where information is exchanged and consumed at a rapid clip every second of the day. With so much being shared, we know that there’s something of value for everyone. People who internalize the value of Twitter understand the power of this simple medium. But it hasn’t been easy to make that value transparent or obvious for curious folks coming to Twitter for the first time.”
