Hey guys, this project was a result of my frustration with Twitter's UI. I use Twitter 99% as a newsreader, and Twitter's web UI is not really optimized for that kind of usage.



Here are some of the highlights:

1. Get rid of modals
2. Thereby allowing for multitasking on Twitter (read through a comment thread on the right side while scanning the feed on the left, scanning the feed while watching a Youtube video on a Tweet, etc.)
3. Also minimize the number of clicks people have to make (by auto-expanding all vertical images, etc.)

I actually wrote a post that elaborates on this--why I built this, and how this improves upon Twitter's own web interface, and why it's best for lazy people like me as well as hardcore Twitter users--please check it out:

Maybe it's just me who feel this frustration, but I guess the only way to find out if others feel the same way is to build something and listen. Would love feedback!

Nice work @gliechtenstein, great idea and frankly a huge improvement on the current UI. However I *do* like to see what's trending, at least somewhere. Is that something you could fit in as a toggle option?

Revolutionary. I had stopped even trying to read my twitter stream in Twitter -- I have been using Flipboard as a better way to go. This might turn me around.
