Soon, long-form tweets will be available as well.
Twitter has begun installing its redesigned user interface, as promised by Elon Musk. The new design, which is accessible in the Twitter app, is presently only available to iOS users.
The “For you” and “Following” tabs have replaced the former “Home” and “Latest” tabs at the top of the user’s timeline, making it easier to flip between the two.
User Interface Updates
According to the Twitter Support handle, users can swipe between tabs to view tweets that are suggested “for you” or tweets from accounts they are “following.”
Users only view tweets from accounts they follow by default. Timelines can be changed by swiping as opposed to pressing the star or glitter icon, which users previously used to select the “For you” and “Latest” alternatives.
Mashable India said it is important to note that the new UI has not yet been made available to Android users and has not yet been rolled out to Indian customers. Twitter has yet to announce a release date for the Android version.
Bird app details
According to Musk, the updated UI is just one part of Twitter’s broader overhaul. The platform’s most significant new feature is it will roll out in February, allowing users to post “long tweets” as part of the upgrade.
Musk previously said users could tweet up to 4,000 characters. However, the actual character count is still unknown. Twitter users were initially allowed to share their thoughts and ideas in 140 characters, but in 2018 the app increased the limit to 280 characters.
Musk has suggested that users will be able to tweet up to 4,000 characters in December 2022, but his latest tweet has yet to confirm a character limit.
Broadly speaking, the new user interface and upcoming long-form tweet feature are expected to provide users with a more unique and exciting experience on the platform. Twitter users are looking forward to the new design and the gradual rollout of upcoming features.
