Twitter changes its interface

Twitter is changing its web-based interface.

The popular micro-blogging platform's new interface has seen the page be transformed from three columns into two, thereby making it

more streamlined.

With the original interface, users could see their profile and trending topics on the left-hand side of the screen, while on the right was a list of suggested people to follow.

In the middle, there were tweets from people who the user already followed.

However, the new interface has just been divided into two columns, with the timeline of tweets from the people who the user follows appearing on the left.

As a result, everything else - including trending topics - appears on the right-hand side of the page.

In a tweet teasing the changes, Twitter said: "A new https://twitter.com is coming.

"Some of you got an opt-in to try it now. Check out the emoji button, quick keyboard shortcuts, upgraded trends, advanced search, and more. Let us know your thoughts! (sic)"

Twitter was created in March 2006 and is now one of the world's most-visited websites.

The platform was, in fact, the largest source of breaking news on the day of the US election in 2016.
