Twitter announced that it has begun rolling out a handful of design tweaks to its web client and mobile apps. The company detailed the update in a thread it posted on Wednesday.
Twitter said that while the new design may feel weird at first, it makes them more accessible, unique and targeted to its users.
The Chirp is Twitter’s most visible change and first native font. The company introduced the font in January.
According to Twitter, one of the main advantages of Chirp is the way it can align the text of tweets written in Western languages to the left side of the interface. The company says this is something that should make it easier to read content as you scroll through your timeline.
Twitter also did its best to use less blue and increase the contrast so that both commonly used icons and visual content such as images stand out. Twitter also said it has plans to roll out additional color palettes soon.
“This is just the beginning of more visual updates as Twitter starts to focus more on you and what you have to say,” the company said.
The company is also introducing a feature for the Spaces app on iOS that allows users to change how their voice sounds when speaking during a presentation. “We know that people are often uncomfortable with the sound of their own voice,” the company said. “Giving people fun and useful effects can lower the threshold.”
