Twitter Blog: New Front Page!

Today I have visited Twitter and found it has a new homepage, and it’s beautiful.

The search box is really BIG now, as it should be. In general, it is a perfect win for twitter because current tweet trends are exposed eloquently and dramatically.

This new front page enables you to view the popular topics by week, day, and minute.

Try to click through some of the trends. Even the SERPS also having some work done. I am noticing that they are giving reasons why some topics are under current trends.

From the official blog:

Twitter began as a rudimentary social tool based on the concept of status messages but together with those who use it every day, the service has taught us what it wants to be. From features invented by users to applications built on the platform, we’re still discovering potential. Twitter has moved from simple social networking into a new kind of communication and a valuable source of timely information. Also, it’s fun.

That it is.
