  1. since i dont use the twitter site much i dont find any difference … as all i access is via twitter client

  2. The New Twitter is really really fast than the older version. Also all the functions we can perform in single page itself..

  3. Who else besides me can’t see the New twitter? I would like to try the new features but mine hasn’t changed yet.

    • i have not seen any changes to the twitter yet.. and i have a good feeling about it, after all twitter was all about the simplicity, i guess putting up too many features and stuff won’t make it all that simple anymore…

  4. Really exciting.
    Great much needed features.
    More importantly it would be good if twitter has lesser down times.

  5. at the moemnt using blu for win 7 , will be installing tweet deck and cotweet , as suggested by friends , any suggestion from you guys

    • i just wrote about top twitter clients for ipod iphone recently. few of which im using myself , like tweetdeck

  6. It took me a while to get used to the new Twitter but I definatley think its changed for the better! Its good that they left it four years before changing things too as opposed to Facebook who seem to be changing things every four months!

    • i never used twitter , though i got hundreds of followers [for one link i left somewhere in my post]. Never made a tweet for the last 2-3 months . I am now installing some twitter clients to use twitter effectively ….
