The new look began rolling out to users worldwide on Mid last month.

No, you still can’t edit tweets, but the new Twitter looks awesome. The company said changes were made to create an even more “accessible and universal way to join the conversations [people] care about.” That’s important as the company looks for way to further increase its user base.

Here’s what the new Twitter is like.

 

The upgraded experience simplifies navigation with a new — and fairly large — left-hand sidebar that directs you to all of Twitter’s key sections, including Notifications, Direct Messages, Explore, Bookmarks, Lists and more. The site also features an expanded, more inbox-like Direct Messages screen where you can view and respond to conversations in one place; plus easy profile switching, support for more themes, advanced search and other features.

Before, you’d have to click on your Profile icon to access features like Lists, Themes, Settings and other options. Meanwhile, getting to Moments was available both in this Profile drop-down menu and in the main Twitter navigation at the top of the screen, next to Notifications and Messages.
