      Not a fan of the design

      I find that when I hear designers say that, it usually means that it was a better design for users ;)

      That's not to say that companies don't royally screw up though so maybe your right _(ツ)_/¯

      Moments like this you hope the developers thought to use a variable to style the site à la $c-tweeta-blue.

    My twitter app looks like the left currently, but I really like the right one better. The blue header stood out and I liked it. Left is too white and kinda of plain to me.

    I prefer the left, it only has one advert instead of two

    Don't think they've released this in the UK yet... I like it! Slightly more vibrant, the Nav feels a little lighter and cleaner using the blue as a highlight - At least it's very consistent now.

    Yeah this surprised me the other day. It would be nicer with no border bottom on the top menu bar. Also if it minimized when you scroll down. More room for the tweets!

    Would love to hear from @design about the reasoning behind the change.

    Having the twitter logo next to other icons with the same treatment (even though the logo is not really a button) is a little confusing to me. But I like the new color.

      Tapping the twitter logo will bring you up to the top of your feed.

        I also thought that, but tapping anywhere on the blank area right next to it does the same thing, so it's still not an official "button"

    does anybody else have the trending news section? I've had it for months and I seem to be the only one at my office that has it.

    To be hones I like it. I don't like UI/Visual designers being blindfolded by branding guidelines by someone who just thew some colors (in most cases).

    I think stuff should change with time...

    Is this iOS only or are the same visuals coming to Android?

      haha that's funny. Coincidentally we were approved for an update the same time as twitter so I only saw cuz I was refreshing the update screen like crazy. Seems like they are doing a lot of testing with it tho, my brother has had circular borders around his icons for a few weeks. Like this: https://twitter.com/mdo/status/636664727385456640

    This is currently being tested. I have seen 2 different versions of the design on the left (one with tab labels, one without), and 3 new versions of the design on the right. They are not afraid to A/B test their UI at all.
