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. 🤔
Wilhem Pujar@wilhempujar · CEO at Stacktical
@rrhoover I'd bet on a rocket icon.
Dan Matthews@danielmatthews ·
@rrhoover thank god! The "whoops you're out of free articles" is one of the worst notifications.
Alex Bauer@alexdbauer · Developer Advocate —
@rrhoover unfortunately that benefit is about to disappear in iOS 11...I wrote about it a bit here:
Maksim Petriv@talkaboutdesign · Founder of Design Hunt
Seems like even updating to new app version doesn't switch to new UI. A/B Testing or forgot to flip the switch?
Ben Guild@benguild
@talkaboutdesign yeah I downloaded it as well and it's still the old one. I'm wondering if it has to do with locale
James U@jimmy_u · hospitality management specialist
@benguild same!
Thanasis@tnsrig · UI/UX @travelplanet24 @airtickets_gr
@talkaboutdesign Same thing here, updated and opened the app and still no change!
Andy Piper
@andypiper · Developer Advocate, Twitter
@tnsrig @talkaboutdesign it will roll out over the next few hours - patience! :-)
Kent Fenwick@kentf · Growth, Hubba
@andypiper @tnsrig @talkaboutdesign a few hours, but I want it now!
Bruno Lemos@brunolemos · Developer // Node, GraphQL, React Native
@andypiper it's weird because the update description is about the new UI and v7.0. EDIT: Got it!

@ptraughber · Product Manager at Twitter
@talkaboutdesign hi Maksim! It'll be rolling out over the next few hours. Stay tuned :)
Krishna De@krishnade · Social business & live video strategist
@talkaboutdesign Ditto - updated the app and it is not showing the new layout to me
Hugo Striedinger@striedinger
@talkaboutdesign Same thing happened to me, killed the app then opened again and new UI appeared.
Mohammed Rafy@rafyasarmatta · All things Community @DoSelectHQ
Seb Jachec@iamsebj · Student, coder, gamer.
@striedinger Thanks for the tip - worked to get the new UI here!
Ben Guild@benguild
@striedinger @talkaboutdesign yeah that's weird. I had to kill the app a few times to get it to appear.
Mohit Mamoria@mohitmamoria · Maker and Storyteller
@talkaboutdesign Kill the app. Go to App Store. Locate the Twitter app. Open it from there by clicking the 'Buy' button.
@talkaboutdesign I found that I had to restart my phone in order to access the new UI - which then appeared immediately.
Aman Alam@amanalam · Maker of Things
@talkaboutdesign I cleared the app from my recent apps' list and opened it again, and it worked for me

@sdw @itisrobertk Design changes can't have new functionality? That's new.
Marat Ryndin@maratryndin · Product Designer, Edgewise Networks
@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.
Adam Pokornicky@callmethebear · CEO, DoggyBnB & Sniffer
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.
Jeremy Bauer@barnabybones · Writer + Arts Instructional Designer
@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. 🎉
