A Sneak Peek at Twitter's New Desktop Layout

Today, we were treated to our first look at the slowly rolled-out Twitter redesign.

The desktop site has had its first major overhaul for some time, with a complete revamp of the location of key features including the navigational bar, trending topics and your own profile content.

With a definite design choice being made to focus on simplicity, to provide more options for interactivity and a clearer view of individual tweets (more scrolling necessary, people!) the design has already been met with a lot of negative reactions... Maybe, people don't like change?

A number of key features have disappeared from obvious view including News, but you can still switch to dark mode and, for the time being, revert back to 'legacy view Twitter' (the old layout).

How to reactivate the old Twitter layout

Some users can reactivate Twitter from their main menu (although we don't have that option on April 25, 2019).
