Everyone’s favorite micro-blogging based social network, Twitter, is apparently in the final days of their old interface design. If you happen to be using #oldTwitter, then you have probably seen the warning below, which tells you that it will be ending ‘very, very soon.’
It appears that Twitter is getting ready to push all of its users to its new interface design, which it calls #newTwitter. Most of the Twitter user base has been using New Twitter for almost a year without much trouble. However, there are a loyal few who are outraged by Twitter’s attempt to push them into using the new design.
As you can see from the Tweets in the screen capture above, these Old Twitter loyalists are pretty dedicated. The question now is whether or not they will actually do anything in response to the switch. I find it hard to believe that any of them will leave Twitter because of the switch.
The transition to New Twitter doesn’t bother me. I have been using various Twitter clients for so long that I didn’t even know there was a #newTwitter until months after its release. I find that managing my accounts and lists in TweetDeck better suites my personal use.
What are your thoughts on #newTwitter? Are you a die hard fan of #oldTwitter? Are you like me, and use a separate Twitter client? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
