Twitter has today announced the beginning of a roll out for a new design of its homepage.
Available for any user who is not signed in, and lives in the US (at the moment, they did say they will roll it out to other regions soon), the new homepage shows users a range of topics from Twitter that they think are interesting.
If the user clicks one of these topics they will be shown a timeline of Tweets from some of the most popular accounts from that topic.
It’s pretty cool, but we don’t do it justice so here’s an explanation from Twitter about it:
Starting today, when you go to the twitter.com homepage, you’ll find interesting topics to explore like Politics, Pop Artists and even Cute Animals. Click on the topic and you’ll see a timeline of Tweets from some of the most popular accounts in that topic. It’s rich real-time content, just like the Twitter experience for users who log in.
We’re introducing the new twitter.com on desktop to U.S. users first, and intend to bring it to more places over time. As with everything we build, we’ll be making lots of improvements along the way so that Twitter’s front page continues to be informative, entertaining and relevant to everyone. Stay tuned.
