Twitter has introduced a new design for its website on August 11.
According to the company, the new design includes a new font, high contrast colors, as well as improved eyesight.
The company added that the changes are aimed at making scrolling easier for people.
“This may sound weird at first, but these updates will make us more accessible, unique and help you focus more on what you’re talking about,” said a tweet from Twitter Design.
The number of features on websites by social networks is constantly increasing, such as live video, shopping and others, which makes it difficult for some people to navigate these sites.
So it’s not surprising that companies like Twitter try to make sites more clean.
Notice anything different?
Today, we released a few changes to the way Twitter looks on the web and on your phone. While it might feel weird at first, these updates make us more accessible, unique, and focused on you and what you’re talking about.
Let’s take a deeper look. 🧵 pic.twitter.com/vCUomsgCNA

According to Twitter, for the first time, he has created his own font, which has been named ‘Chirp’.
The company has previously used SF Pro, Roboto and Helvetic New as typewriters on the social media network.
Twitter added that all Western language text will be left-aligned, a change that will make it easier for users to read text while scrolling through the site.
Some Twitter users did not like the change and called the new font ‘ugly’.
Contrast has also been increased in the colors of the site by reducing the blue to make the photos and videos more prominent.
Similarly, the gray background has been reduced and the space has been increased to make the text easier to read.
