re: Twitter's new UI VIEW POST


There are two things that drive me crazy with the new UI/UX:

  1. The scrolling on new tweets: If I’m typing, and a new tweet pops up in the feed, the page will scroll automatically and I’ll lose sight of the text input. It seems like a big usability fail.

  2. There are areas in the input that are not input areas: the space above the emoticon icon is not part of the input even when it’s inside the input box. I would have expected that clicking on that area would focus the input but it doesn’t. It just does nothing.

For the good things: The left menu has more options than the previous horizontal menu, which is nice. Although it took a little bit of time adjusting to the new position of things.


Is the scrolling a setting? I just get a blue dot on home and a "more tweets" bubble at the top.


They have changed the interface since I wrote the comment. I haven't been able to replicate #1, but #2 is moot now as the input box has changed completely.


What is that setting? I was still able to see the first issue. Is it the "reduce motion" option?

I don't have that on, so it's not that. It's possible that my adblock settings are doing something, or I've just been part of an A/B test.
