Smart Modifications In The User Interface Of Twitter
designers are always in hunger of making user experience better and better. There are few smart modifications I have
mentioned in this article below.
WHY “COMPOSE NEW TWEET” OPTION DISPLAYED TWICE?
There are 2 options for compose
new tweet on the user’s home page.
First is in the left hand side below the user name and
second is after search box on the top right corner. When I saw it first time I found it unreasonable, but when I
went to any other user’s profile I have found first option as a space to reply
that particular user and you compose a new tweet only if you write in the box
at top right corner.
So finally I found it very correct!
CLOSE ALL OPEN TWEETS
you open any tweet to read there is a space in between every tweet. To close
all those tweets in a single click you can click the last option in the top right
called as “Close all open Tweets”.
OPEN & CLOSE PARTICULAR TWEET
is a very compact functionality if mouse over and mouse click on particular tweet.
the image above firefox people tweeted 16hours back.If you mouseover on 16h or on that particular cell
area, time replaces with option “open”,“favorite”, ”retweet” and “reply” which stays until I completely mouse out from that tweet
cell area. If
you click on open, “open” get replaced with “close” and you see how many people
retweeted and marked as favorite to the perticular tweet and below that you
will find shifting of the mouse over options, also few replies from other users
to that particular tweet.
somebody has tweeted link of a photo or a video you can see that in the opened
tweet itself without moving you to other tab.
a clever use of space!
OPENING IBOX ON CLICK
of moving you to other tab twitter has given you popup box layer which is
technically called as ibox when you reply, retweet, choose trend location and click
to other user’s profile.
REFRESHING USER ON CANCELLING
the left hand side there is window “who to follow” showing 3 profile to whom twitter
is recommending to follow. As soon as
you click on refresh other 3 profiles get displayed, but the
exciting part is in front of every profile there is cancel (x) sign which works
as a refresh only.
If you find any new functionality change in twitter UI kindly comment here.
