I don’t know if I didn’t notice it earlier but Twitter now let’s their users change their Twitter pages to the redesigned environment just for a preview. You may also revert it back to the current setup. There were news about it and even a video about the New Twitter. I tried the new one and here’s what I got – comparing the old and new pages:
One thing I noticed is that when you click on a tweet, the right side panel will display things related to the tweet – who retweeted it, tweets that mention some same stuff, or other tweets from the same user. Here’s an example:
New Twitter Feature
I’m not sure if everything is really there just as the Twitter guys promised. Got to check it out more. It would also take me some time to get use to the new page. And I got to change my background, again.
If you want to revert back to the old page, click your username at the top right portion of the page and select “Leave preview”.

Did you know...
microblogging, modern mechanix, notificator, twitter
In the mid-30’s, a robot message carrier was introduced in London, England. It was called “The Notificator”.
The machine is installed in streets and other public places where individuals may leave messages for friends like informing them of their whereabouts or making or canceling of appointments.
In front of the machine, the user writes his message on a continuous strip of paper and drops a coin in the slot. The message then moves up behind the glass panel and remains in public view for two hours.
Today, there’s a web-based notificator. All you have to do is type in a twitter user’s username and click the Notificate button. You’ll be given a twitter search result on what the user’s been up to.
