What's different with Twitter after it rolled out a new look?

Twitter launches big iOS app redesign still no way to actually edit a tweet Twitter's latest redesign makes the iOS app look more like Android

A more noticeable change on Twitter is a redesigned typography.

The San Francisco company says the new design emphasizes simplicity, making it faster and easier to use, with bolder headlines and more intuitive icons.

"We listened closely and kept what you love", Kim wrote in a blog post.

What do you think of Twitter's new look?

Like on Android, the iOS Twitter app's navigation menu will provide quick access to profiles, additional accounts, settings and privacy.

Today's redesign is rolling out to users today, and Twitter for iOS v7.0 is already live on the App Store with these changes. This makes it clearer especially for new users that the symbol is to reply to someone's tweet not to go back to a previous page, the company said.

Icons are also now lighter, "for more seamless interaction".

Twitter also made a small change to how links behave inside of the service. Now, the new "comment" feature will make it similar to Facebook, which may help the company attract new users. Twitter calls the new addition a "side navigation menu".

The redesign also features new icons that are created to be more intuitive, especially if you are using Twitter for the first time. These new features and tweaks are coming to iOS, Android, TweetDeck, and Twitter Lite, though you may not see them right away. The question really then is how much resonance will this have with the about 328 million active users? Because of that, Twitter has changed the arrow to a speech bubble, which obviously means to reply or join in on the conversation.

On the iOS app, the counts for replies, retweets and likes update instantly, so you know exactly how a tweet is being received by the community. This means that you can track how a tweet is doing in real time. Twitter now has about 328 million monthly active users, who're coming to the platform to stream live content or see the U.S President Trump make a fool of himself.

In the first quarter of 2017 Twitter had around 326m users.
