Like most Internet services, Twitter updates its user interface relatively frequently. If it is true that sometimes the changes are almost negligible or only affect small details. However on other occasions the change is much more rooted and changes practically any aspect of the interface. This is precisely what is happening right now since Twitter is gradually introducing in its browser version, a radical change in its interface which is much more minimalist and similar to its mobile application.

In general, the design change in the Twitter interface is to improve the usability of its platform, however not all users are happy with these changes. Most of the complaints focus on how used the user is to the old version of Twitter.
This is not really a problem since in a few days the user usually gets used to the new interface perfectly. It’s just a matter of time!!!. However, there are many who want to go back to the old version of Twitter at all costs.
It should be noted that the new version of Twitter is not yet available to all users, but is being activated progressively and randomly by social network accounts around the world. However, this means that sooner or later all Twitter users will have the new Twitter interface on their device.
Another aspect to take into account is that although Twitter allows for the moment to return to the previous version of its social network (in the Web version), sooner or later it will end up forcing all its users to use the new version. So why not start using it now and adapt to it as quickly as possible?
