Twitter rolls out new features offering power networking
with a robust set of rich information tools
for improved user experience.
The New Twitter
The folks at Twitter are promising an amazing redesign of their social networking short messaging service.
The new Twitter looks like they finally got it all together. It features an easy access control panel right in our home page view consolidating its user services. This opens up the 140 character social media network to become an information rich, multimedia enabled business and social networking platform.
How did they make this happen? Twitter partnered with some of the internet’s top social media service providers to offer this full featured service. Now you can access Dailybooth, DeviantArt, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, TwitPic, Twitvid, USTREAM, Vimeo, Yfrog, YouTube and more, to make your tweets more useful from within your Twitter account.
New Look And Performance
The New Twitter features more info under each tweet, deeper context, fully playable embedded media, a side panel that slides out to the right of your tweet stream to reveal all this content beautifully.
New Home Panel
Your Twitter User Home Page now sports a broader control panel on the right with more clearly identifiable function areas.
Preview User Profiles from Tweets
Much like its competitors, Twitter now presents a user profile preview right in your account when selecting a tweet. This saves time with reduced browser refreshing from opening a new page to view a user’s profile information.
Multimedia Display and Play
See embedded photos and watch Youtube, Vimeo or USTREAM videos right in your Twitter account.
The new Twitter features will be rolling out slowly over several weeks.
