Introducing | The New

Twitter has taken the covers off a pretty extensive site redesign. It seems this new redesign will put a damper on many of the desktop Twitter applications out there right now. The site’s actually more user-friendly now with a much more streamlined approach. @mentions, retweets, searches, and lists can be found above your timeline on the left while the right side of the screen gives us favorites, TTs and even whom you recently followed and vice versa.

I think the coolest part of the upgrade is the lineup of partnerships to get content directly embedded in a fairly simple manner. Highlighted partnerships include Dailybooth, DeviantArt, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, Twitvid, USTREAM, Vimeo, Yfrog, and YouTube.

No need for us to bore you with all the details, as Twitter actually put up a two-minute video highlighting some of the features. Look for the new to begin rolling out immediately and go full-force in a couple weeks.

Twitter Postpones Schedule Maintenance to Keep Flow of Iran-related Information Going


With the current turmoil in Iran worsening, social networking site Twitter and its Co-Founder Biz Stone have decided to delay a crucial scheduled maintenance. Originally, the much-needed fix was scheduled for overnight, but has now been pushed to 2 to 3 p.m. Pacific time Tuesday, which would be the middle of the night in Iran.

NTT America, a division of Japanese telecommunications giant Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Co., hosts the micro-networking site, and they have taken a major risk in realizing the important role Twitter is playing in Iran, where most other social networking outlets like YouTube and Facebook have reportedly been banned.
