Visual tour: The new Twitter.com
Coming soon to a Twitter account near you: Embedded pictures and video, threaded replies and drill-downs. Look out, Facebook?
Earlier this week, Twitter announced a redesigned home page that would make it easier to find and follow conversations and links on the microblogging service. The new features will be rolled out to users gradually over the next several weeks, but Computerworld gained access to it on Thursday. Here's a gallery of images showing the new Twitter's look and tools.
After logging into Twitter, the new home page makes its debut. The left side of the screen still contains your timeline, but with a different look. But the width of the right-hand pane is significantly larger. This is where many of the new features play out.
