Twitter Redesigned Its Dark Mode, Rolls Out Simpler Navigation Globally
Twitter has started rolling out a major design overhaul for its desktop site after testing it since the beginning of the year. In aÂ blog postÂ on Monday, the micro-blogging platform said that the updated website will beÂ â€œfaster, easier to navigate and more personalizedâ€.
Updated User Interface
According to the company, the new version of the site hasÂ â€œan updated look and feel that is more consistent with the Twitter you see on other devicesâ€. The new UI will also make it easier for users to access many of the popular features, and with more customization options, said the company.
The updated interface includes a large new sidebar on the left (see image above) with all of Twitterâ€™s key sections, including Notifications, Direct Messages, Explore, Bookmarks, Lists and more.Â â€˜Direct Messagesâ€™Â (DMs) have also been expanded to let users see all their conversations and send messages from the same view.

Easy Profile Switching
Another notable change is the ability to quickly switch profiles, which will certainly be useful for people running multiple profiles on the platform.Â â€œWhether you have one profile or a few, now youâ€™re also able to switch between accounts faster, directly from the side navigationâ€, said the company.
Dark Mode Option
Last, but definitely not the least, are a couple of dark mode options that make the site look infinitely better right off the bat. The first one, called â€˜Dimâ€™, is a greyish theme that most people would opt for, but thereâ€™s also aÂ â€˜Lights Outâ€™Â option for people preferring a pitch dark theme. These are just part of an overall change that added a whole host of personalization options to the desktop interface, including a whole bunch of other themes and color options.
