The Twitter redesign sees the overall look simplified and this greatly improves the user experience, putting everything within easy reach.

Here is what has been redesign in the Android Twitter app:

  1. The Tab Bar, located at the top of the screen, now has added swipe functionality, making it quicker to move between notifications, messages and the time line. The Twitter Search icon is now also placed within the Tab Bar.
  2. Users can now drag in the navigation menu from the left side of the screen and this gives fast access to the user’s profile, highlights, lists, connect tab and settings.
  3. The final redesigned element sees a new floating action button, which is present at the bottom right of the screen at all times, no matter which Twitter screen is being viewed. With a simple tap, the floating action button allows users to pen a new message. As always, the create a message screen allows for a location, picture, poll or animated gif to be attached to the post.
