Twitter redesign aims: More control, bigger bottom line
Share

By updating its iOS and Android apps and releasing an all-new iPad app, Twitter aims to bring more users than ever back into the fold. Read this blog post by Daniel Terdiman on Internet & Media.

 

With the “mobile first” strategy it unveiled today, Twitter achieved two key goals: creating a look and feel that more than ever resembles Facebook’s, and asserting new dominance over users’ Twitter experience.

On the surface, the announcements of new Twitter profiles, common across all devices and operating systems and top-heavy with a single cover photo, as well as a new photo stream, and an all-new iPad app, are essentially incremental moves, albeit ones that streamline users’ mobile experiences.

But for years, the company has been trying to bring its users back into the fold, slowly limiting their third-party options, either through acquisitions of popular apps like TweetDeck or Posterous or through locking out third-party photo services like TwitPic, and yFrog — which Twitter quietly did today with the new versions of its mobile apps. And all in the guise of gaining more control over the advertising dollars generated by the service.
