twitterlogoTwitter has announced a complete redesign of its website and apps, starting with new mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Today we introduce a new version of Twitter. We’ve simplified the design to make it easier than ever to follow what you care about, connect with others and discover something new. You’ll see this new design both on Twitter.com and mobile phones, so that you’ll have a familiar experience any time, anywhere.

The Twitter 4.0 app has four main navigation tabs:

twitter primitives 4up

- Home is where you start from: a personal collection of Tweets from the sources you care about. The Tweet details show rich information such as replies, retweets and embedded images.

- Connect is the place to see who followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets. It’s where you keep the conversation flowing.

- Discover is where you can tap into the stories and trends people are talking about in your world. You can also find friends, browse interests, and explore hashtags here.

- Me puts you and your interests front and center. From here you can exchange Direct Messages with your followers.

Twitter 4.0 is available for iPhone, free on the App Store [Direct Link]. An updated iPad app will be coming down the road.

A lot of people are complaining, but I like the new interface better.

I wondered why I was suddenly getting twitter follow requests, when I don't even use it.

They're probably just spam accounts anyways.

Got new app, but website hasn't changed.
Guess it takes a while - looks great the new design though from the pictures.

I've just switched to Tweetbot - and it's so much better it's unreal.

Strongly recommended!

No way to change the font size is a FAIL. It looks cool but so much of the screen is wasted since it's unused. Who cares about borders and outlines? Just give me the most content that can fit on the already small handheld sized screen!

I couldn't find it either. I can't blame Loren Brichter for quitting Twitter. This redesign isn't the worst thing I've seen, but they ripped the guts of what made Tweetie so great right out of this app. Removing the swipe gesture was not a smart move. Adding extra taps to get to things is never a good design move.

To get back to the front of your timeline, just tap the home tab (even if you're already on the home tab)
