Twitter unveils UI refinements across platforms, now with more circles

Twitter has updated its website to give the interface a more circular appearance, the most notable change is that profile pictures are now rounded instead of squared, other elements of the design have been rounded too. Twitter has announced that the new interface will be introduced to iOS, Android, TweetDeck, and Twitter Lite, too, over the coming days and weeks.

Aside from rounded profile pictures, the typography has been made more consistent, and bolder headlines have been added to make it easier to focus on what’s happening. Below each tweet, the reply, retweet and favourite buttons have been refreshed making them more understandable. The icons also update on the fly so that you can see new reply, retweet, and like counts more easily as the conversation is progressing.

iOS users will notice a new side navigation menu and fewer tabs at the bottom of the app making for easier browsing. Additionally, links to articles and websites will now open in Safari’s viewer in the Twitter app so you can more easily access accounts on websites you’re already signed into.

Web users that aren’t keen on the new changes can revert to the old interface by installing a Chrome extension called Twitter Debubbler, alternatively, if you’re more compromising, you can provide Twitter with feedback on how they can improve still further.
