I kinda like what seems to be the general idea behind the redesign (having tweets on the far side of the page always bothered me, for one), but in practice here it is over-complicated and not really what I'd want from twitter.
I'm usually not one to complain about social media redesigns, I get used to'em pretty quickly but I find this Twitter irritating. Luckily you can easily change back. Do you have an account, or have you in fact been Hayley Williams all along?

I forget what it said exactly, but it was one of the big blue buttons right at the top of the page.

Yes, and to prove it I'll tweet something about Paramore being on tour in the next 24 hours, probably.

I don't really mind it. How often do you actually check someone's profile? It's not my focus on the site.

Idk while I was trying to read all those threads about Scott Heisel being a big stupid baby it was pretty obnoxious. Silly how if you click on a tweet it opens a new screen for the whole convo. And it's a jarringly ugly contrast.

Ok yeah this bothered me too. Seemed unnecessary. The functions are annoying but the designs itself is whatever. I kinda like having popular tweets displayed prominently though there's probably a better way to do that.

It is bizarre how bad the design is. The generic background makes everyone's profile look 99% the same and the different sized fonts on certain tweets are an eyesore. The only good innovation was the pinned tweet, though I think the concept could've been executed better.

I still haven't figured out how to change back. Everything I find seems to indicate it's not possible.

Yeah, what in the world is that about? All of my tweets are utter garbage and to have them appear in inconsistent sizes falsely (and potentially illegally) implies that some of them might actually be good or in someway necessary.

But seriously, it looks like hell.

Hmmm, one of these very original tweeters looks familiar.

Sometimes I can't tell whether Twitter is where comedy goes to die, or the opposite, hah.

there's a new twitter design - I don't think I've actually visited the Twitter homepage in over a year.
