The new features haven’t quite rolled out to everyone yet, but the Twitterverse is already buzzing about the upgrade. Let’s take a quick peek at some of the awesome new features! New Twitter puts more of a focus on you, not just your content. A larger header with your photo and tagline are displayed prominently. Under the Home tab, you will find your profile picture, Trending Topics and Suggested People to follow on the left side rather than the right, giving it a feel similar to Facebook.
To take a peek at your Mentions and Retweets, simply click in the @Connect button at the top of the page.
The @Connect page is essentially the same as the Activity Tab that rolled out a few weeks ago. In addition to your mentions and retweets, you can easily see who has followed you recently.
More Keyboard Shortcuts Twitter has made it even faster and easier to get around the site. You don’t even need a mouse. Check it out!
You now have the option to “open” a tweet
This allows you to see the photo or image attached to the tweet. When you open a tweet, it is super easy to see how many times it has been retweeted AND favorited.
Discover New Things About Your Friends
The “Discover” tabs allows you to take a deeper look at what the people you are following are doing. Activity allows you see who your friends have followed recently, what they’ve favorited, and what they’re saying. It’s a nice way to track everything that’s going on in one place.
One of the coolest new features allows you to find new and awesome people to follow by sifting through different interests you may have. So if you are looking for artists, musicians, or social media experts you can find them in second. You may even discover some new interests!
