    When i'm starting to get used to the new layout, Twitter change to it an even newer one.
    Seems to be ok though, not counting the heart attack this change almost caused me, i thought for a second i got banned, when nothing came up on the usual url :)

    I've read, it was introduced 2 months ago, i guess they're rolling this out in phases:

    I like them focusing on new design instead of tweaking their ban hammer :)

    Haven't used Twitter long enough to judge to be honest but the current layout pleases me since it's pretty simple. Facebook on the other hand...

    The new design is kind of complicated for me. I prefer the oldest one which I still use in my real account. Classic:ridinghor

    They are redesigning their site to be able to put up ads for monetization.

    They have tens and tens of millions of users, but they are not really making money.

    I would not be surprised if they turn twitter into a facebook type of site.

    I'm in the US.. and i've seen/been using this "new" layout for about 3 months if not longer I think.

    that's weird that you all are just now seeing it?

    that's weird, it's hard for me to remember what the old one looked like now haha.

    I do remember not liking it at first.. but now I'm use to it.. so hopefully you'll get use to it as well in due time.

    I personally dig it way better than the latest redesign, some of my accounts got upgraded some didn't. I can safely say it doesn't depend on your location. They probably have pools of gazillion accounts on various server farms and it's just taking some time to roll out the update in "batches".

    I use my own bots not TA, but it's likely they're gonna have to update their app if they use the standard web interface to automate the accounts.

    Not too bad as redesigns go, tend to use the API more than the actual site though.
