If you\'re currently using Old Twitter, we want to let you know that you\'ll be upgraded to New Twitter this week.
Last year, when Twitter unveiled the updated version of its site (aka New Twitter), users still had the option of using the older, more familiar version (aka Old Twitter). However, this week, the service's official feed (@Twitter) alerted customers that Old Twitter would be completely phased out by the end of the week.
