Snippet: Twitter Redesign Looks a Lot Like Facebook ☇

Shared on April 8, 2014

Vlad Savov:

Visuals have been growing increasingly important for Twitter and the new design pushes them even further to the fore, with larger background images and more prominent profile pictures. There’s an unmissable similarity to Facebook’s profile pages, with the user’s photos and friends both being tucked into a tile layout on the lower left.

Just…no. I understand Twitter needs to find ways to make money, but they need to stop fiddling with the design—it’s losing focus much like the every-few-months rework of Facebook.
