Episode Highlights

Note: As of August 2019, the new Twitter design had been rolled out to almost everyone. If you don’t have it yet, be patient. It’s on it’s way.

Madalyn’s Highlights of Twitter’s New Desktop Design:

  • Easier navigation with a revamped, left-hand sidebar. It replaces the old drop-down menu and gives you easier access to everything, including:
    • Messages – A new, more-organized home for direct messages that replaces having to switch screens to go from one message to another.
    • Bookmarks – A new feature for bookmarking a tweet, an alternative to liking tweets. Bookmarking tweets creates a private, curated list. To bookmark a tweet, click on a tweet’s up arrow icon and select “Add Tweet to Bookmarks.” To find the tweets you saved, select “Bookmarks” in the sidebar.
    • Display (Under “More”) – A cool new feature that allows you to customize font size, colors (for hashtag links, @ mentions, and buttons) and background (Default, Dim, Lights Out).
  • The ability to manage multiple Twitter accounts without having to log in and out.
