Rolling out over the next few weeks, Twitter users will have a much more dynamic and streamlined experience on the site. Much of the new features have some start-ups, who’ve built applications that work alongside with Twitter a little nervous. The New York Times reports that even though 78 percent of Twitter’s unique users gain access to the service through its Web site, the site has had some major flaws. Twitter has not been able to funnel resources into redesigning the site until now, Evan Williams, Co-Founder of Twitter said, because the company has had trouble keeping up with its growth, even struggling to keep its Web site from crashing. The New York Times report goes on to say that on the new Twitter Web site, people see two panes instead of a single timeline of posts. The timeline stays in the left pane. In the right pane, they can see more information about posts ‘ like biographies of authors, photos and videos to which posts link ‘ and conversations that spring from a particular post. This eliminates the need to click back and forth.
If you’ve had the opportunity to explore the new features that Twitter offers, do you think you’ll abandon TweetDeck, Hootsuite or other services?
