I wanted to share more from our recent redesign of Twitter.
This shot highlights changes related to the structure of a Tweet and the Home Timeline, such as:
We removed most of our usage of smaller font-sizes, to simplify the overall appearance of Tweets.
We applied a heavier font-weight to titles that we insert above Tweets, to better differentiate the voice of people using Twitter from titles we use to help people with wayfinding.
We made icons, avatars, and other shapes softer in appearance, to subtly make Twitter feel like it has more white space, without actually decreasing the amount of content we display on a screen.
Thanks for any feedback, and expect more from us shortly!
