The new design feels cleaner. Perhaps the greatest addition: "Links to articles and websites now open in Safari’s viewer in the Twitter app so you can easily access accounts on websites you’re already signed into.*" Note that they moved the profile button to the top left, leaving 4 main navigation buttons at the bottom and room for one more. What might they add? I'd bet on a "TV" button. 🤔

@rrhoover I'd bet on a rocket icon.
@rrhoover thank god! The "whoops you're out of free articles" is one of the worst notifications.
@rrhoover unfortunately that benefit is about to disappear in iOS 11...I wrote about it a bit here: https://blog.branch.io/what-the-...
Seems like even updating to new app version doesn't switch to new UI. A/B Testing or forgot to flip the switch?

@talkaboutdesign yeah I downloaded it as well and it's still the old one. I'm wondering if it has to do with locale

@itisrobertk It's a design change.
@sdw Still no editing Product Hunt comments.
@sdw @itisrobertk Design changes can't have new functionality? That's new.
@itisrobertk Talked to someone on Twitter about this and he's completely against this change. It's what makes Twitter unique as a historical record. Might have a point.
Much cleaner feel. I like it. For me, I know everyone has different things they wish twitter would improve but I use "Lists" aggressively to have clean feeds and follow different topics. It seems like they addressed it by making lists easier to access from side nav but seems like the easier UX tweek would be to have a dropdown for lists from the bird at the top of our feed. One button to move between lists/feeds.
@callmethebear I'm also a huge Lists user. I'm really glad they've made getting to Lists easier, but I would like Lists to have its own icon in the main app view. Or for a long press on the Home icon to bring up the Lists menu. I feel like it kind of makes sense since Lists are like alternate, customized Home feeds.
Omg, finally. 🎉
