We’ve had about 24 hours now to get accustomed to the new Twitter interface design. As many have described, the new design seems mostly cosmetic. It doesn’t appear that the refresh was designed for usability, but aesthetics. It takes a little time to find how the archive tab was replaced (click on your thumbnail) and hover over an update to find the stat and swoosh. Personally, I think it’s fine, although I ha… Continue
