If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

Among many major changes which are the user’s main picture and bio which are now scaled to the left, and the more space dedicated to the header photo. This revamped timeline makes tweets look larger and focus more on photos. Also, tweets with more engagement appear larger in user timelines, and you can filter based on photos/videos, replies and so on.

Saying all that, I would like to share my opinion on this. Twitter should have had come up with something unique. What happened to creativity and innovation?! Facebook is trying to be Twitter and Twitter is trying to be Facebook. Between hashtags and trending topics, the two are becoming more and more alike. With this “new” redesign, it will be almost impossible to tell the two apart aside from one limiting all updates to 140 characters.

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” The two social networks are very different from another and for a reason. What’s the point of having separate social networking platforms if they’re going to be identical? Ugh, well maybe Google+ will finally get it’s moment,

All Twitter users will get the redesign in the “coming weeks.” So, What do you think of the new re-design?!
