Twitter gets a new mobile site

Recently Twitter rolled out a new mobile website, and since Twitter offers a little greatness to everybody, we thought we’d explore some of the updates they’ve put into place.

On the Twitter blog, user experience lead, leland, summed up the changes like so:

Our new mobile web site is previewing today, just point your phone’s browser to Its got a great new look, and has some great new touches that will make your mobile experience on Twitter a bit more fun and a lot more helpful. Let us know if you agree and especially tell us how we can make it better.

Older reviews of the interface complained that it was too crammed and difficult to read, and wished there were more icons and images to break up the amount of text. In doing a simple image search for twitter mobile you’ll find a few images of the old interface, which definitely show how much of an improvement the current design changes are.

Twitter has always exhibited nice and clean, friendly design, so it’s great to hear that they are making sure their mobile site keeps up with that standard on all fronts. Take a look in the gallery below to see some examples of the improvements.

What do you think? Do you even use Twitter mobile or do you access Twitter through a specific client? Sound off in the comments.
