In an attempt to improve the user experience, the declining platform unveiled a new layout and design across all apps on Thursday, June 15. 

Updates include the following:

  1. A gray outline drawing has replaced all solid gray icons.

  2. Headers are now displayed in bold.

  3. Avatars are now circular instead of square – both in profiles and in Twitter feeds.

  4. The number of Likes and Retweets now count in real time – allowing you to watch the action while it’s happening live.

  5. The home icon remains a house, but without a perch.

  6. A speech bubble has replaced the “reply” button

The best part about these updates? The internet’s response. With Twitter being one of the most opinionated of the social platforms–users took to their Twitter Fingers to air out their frustrations and reactions to the changes. Some of my favorites are below.

So what do you think of the Twitter redesign? Love it or hate that suddenly everything in your life is shaped like a circle? Let us know in the comments!
