Twitter has improved the experience of its users with a newly implemented font and icons, Chronicle NG has observed.
The social media giant made the changes some minutes ago. The new Twitter font is Arial Bold and it appears to be size 10 or 11.
The change in icons brings it pretty close to what we have on Instagram
The Retweet, Follow and Like buttons now have something I will call a ‘sex appeal’.
The same is applicable Home, Notification and Messages have also been modified.
The icons are easy-on-the-eye and have got some captivating tilt to it.
Put simply, Twitter has gone from Square to Circle or maybe curvy.
I want to believe that this new features were designed to improve the user experience on the micro-blogging site.
Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, “tweets”, restricted to 140 characters.
Registered users can post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them.
Users access Twitter through its website interface, SMS or a mobile device app.
Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco, California, United States, and has more than 25 offices around the world.
Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity.
In 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day, and the service handled an average of 1.6 billion search queries per day.
In 2013, it was one of the ten most-visited websites and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet”.

On the day of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Twitter proved to be the largest source of breaking news, with 40 million election-related tweets sent by 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) that day.
