Your Twitter account is getting a visual upgrade. The organization has announced that it is introducing text style and configuration changes with its web and mobile applications. While the changes may seem subtle at first, this is a major plan design as Twitter has chosen to change themes element that it has caused users to learn throughout the long term. The organization is also rolling out its Chirp font to its Twitter app and feed. Hence, if you sign in to Twitter today, it might seem a bit off.
Twitter’s new font style and design update have effectively started rolling out to its mobile application and feed. While some may as of now see the change, it probably won’t be apparent yet for other people. Back in January, Twitter detailed the Chirp font as one part of a broader brand refresh. “Chirp strikes the balance between messy and sharp to amplify the fun and irreverence of a Tweet, but can also carry the weight of seriousness when needed,” wrote Twitter. As The Verge reports, Twitter’s creative director for the global brand Derrit DeRouen had said that using the new font in the feed was his personal desire.
Besides, there is a fun easter egg with the new font style. On the off chance that you type [CHIRPBIRDICON] in the tweet create a box, you will get the Twitter logo. For reference, that is “Twitter,” “bird,” and “symbol” all crushed into a single word. Make sure to enter it in all covers.
Twitter is also changing its theme scheme from black and blue (in dark mode) to black and white. “We’ve updated our colors to be high contrast and a lot less blue — a change made to draw attention to the photos and videos you create and share,” Twitter said in a thread posted by its design account. This also enables that the much-beloved Follow button is changing. While it used to be filled in the event that you follow, it is now changing to fill in if you don’t. It is the exact opposite of what Twitter users have learned over the years.
