Twitter web overhaul borrows cues from iPad app

New Twitter page uses iPad-like panes

Twitter tonight held a special event to give an early look at the new Twitter. The new page draws directly from the design of the iPad app and makes content show automatically in a second pane rather than popping out a new window. Photo hosts like Flickr, TwitPic and Yfrog, as well as video hosts like Ustream and YouTube, will have their content embedded in a format that's more helpful both to computers and to tablets like the iPad.

Profiles also get short expansions in the secondary pane, as do things related to a given update, such as map data when a location is attached. Frequent readers now have access to an "infinite" scroll that will load older updates on the spot rather than require a click to queue them up. Many of the categories that had controls on the right, such as @ replies and direct messages, have been moved to above the timeline to keep the sections clean.

The refreshed Twitter page is going live tonight as part of a small, controlled preview that should expand over several weeks until every user has the new page.

    or...

    The iPad app borrowed cues from the all new Twitter web site.

    Re: Occam's Razor...

    ...surely explains that comment in this alternate universe where time machines exist allowing the creators of the new Twitter web interface to travel back through time and see the iPad app.


    Or, more likely, they've been working on a redesign of the website for a long time, and, as such, when they started work on the iPad app, they used the same interface elements.
