Twitter Rolls Out New ‘Engaging’ Homepage

If you have been on the Twitter homepage this week, you may have noticed that the layout has changed. Users who are not logged in will now see a different homepage which has been deemed more ‘engaging’ by the company.

On the new page, users can see real-time updates from celebrities, influential figures and news websites. There is also the option to search through tweets, a function that was previously only available to users that were logged in.

The homepage was initially trialled in US and Japan, before rolling out to the UK and 21 other countries around the world.

It is available to those accessing the site from both desktop and mobile devices, meaning that everyone can experience the redesigned homepage!

In a blog post, the company said; “Before today, you could see individual Tweets but it was hard to discover stories and conversations happening on Twitter without signing in.”

“Now, you can check out a news story as it unfolds, dive into the play-by-play discussions around a game, and then come back again to see that exchange between two rappers everyone’s been talking about. It’s real-time and straight from the source, just like the Twitter experience for those who log in.”

“We’re also expanding our refreshed homepage on web, which is already available in the US and Japan. Starting today, anyone can explore and discover different topics and stories as they occur, including some that are tailored just for you based on your location and activity on Twitter.”
