The redesigned Twitter is at last here. Twitter’s new user interface(UI) for desktop is being rolled out globally, focusing on speed and ease of usage.
The new design is much cleaner that includes a bookmark feature, and an Explore page, but still, there is no edit button. The UI also has a larger view of Direct Messages (DMs), and similar to Facebook Messenger’s desktop User Interface, one would now be able to respond to messages and view conversations on the same screen. It also has a sidebar menu, which makes it easier to switch between accounts.
The most remarkable changes though are the two ‘dark mode’ options, and the various color and theme options. While the new dark mode options might remind you of the dark themes that Twitter recently added to Ios, the six different color themes to choose from makes the UI much more personalized.
There’s a ‘Dim,’ or blue/grey, dark mode theme, a new ‘Lights Out’ theme, and a programmed dark mode. The new color options let the user choose between yellow, pink, purple, blue, green, and orange-colored themes, which change the accents and fonts to the selected color.
Here’s how you can explore the new color themes on the new Twitter desktop UI
Step 1: On the Twitter desktop app, click on the profile icon on the top right. From the drop-down menu, click on ‘Try the new Twitter,’ which should be the last option.
Step 2: Once the screen changes to the new design for Twitter desktop, to change either the color themes or to choose between the three dark modes, click on the ‘More’ option on the left of your Profile.
Step 3: Click on ‘Display,’ the second last option in the drop-down menu, just above the log-out option.
Step 4: Here, you can choose from the six different color themes. At the bottom, there should be an option to switch between the different shades of Dark mode. You can also change the Font size from here.
