Twitter's new look now available for all users

Twitters recent image makeover is finally complete. The social networking service launched its new user interface back in December but the updated UI was only available for a few members at the time on the service (the new look was launched immediately for iOS and Android users). Today, the official Twitter blog announced that the new look for the service is now available to all of Twitters readers.

If you are just now getting the new user interface, heres a quick summary into whats been changed. First, each tweet can be expanded with the click of the mouse to see things like retweets, photos, and more. PC users can click on the L button on the keyboard to collapse all of the tweets that a person may have expanded.

The new connect page allows users to check out which Twitter users are now following them in chronological order along with any conversations, retweets and more. The new discover page creates a custom Twitter news feed based on the persons interest. You can also embed your tweets on your web site with the new design, replacing the old "Blackbird Pie" feature.

While we know some people are grumbling that the new Twitter look isnt as good as the old one, we suspect that most people will eventually get used to the new features and interface.
