New Twitter Homepage Unveiled: See The Before And After (PICTURE)

Posted: Updated:

Twitter's homepage is getting a redesign.

Twitter unveiled the new layout earlier today and introduced the new design on its official blog.

Twitter said of the new look:

With the new design, we're intentionally featuring more dynamic content on the front page, revealing a sample of who's here, what folks are tweeting about, and the big topics that they're discussing. The homepage now features a set of algorithmically-selected top tweets that automatically appear every few seconds. It also highlights a random sampling of suggested sources; hover over any of them to see a profile summary and their latest tweet. Trending topics now scroll across the page, allowing us to present a large set of trends using little page real estate. Hovering over some of these trends will show a description explaining why the keyword is (or has recently been) popular.

As Mashable notes, the last time Twitter revamped its homepage was in the summer of 2009. That redesign notably added trending topics to Twitter's front page.
