Twitter has received some design changes today, including a new font named Chirp. While all the buttons and features remain unchanged, it’s the looks that have been revamped. The microblogging platform now gets high-contrast buttons that look good when you hit the like or retweet button. Twitter also says that the high-contrast design has a lot less blue, which lets you focus better on the colors in the content that you’re looking at.

The changes will be visible on the web as well as the Twitter app on your phone. Twitter introduced a new font called Chirp in January, which it has applied today. With the new font, the western-language text aligns to the left now. The platform says it’ll make it easier to read as you scroll through Twitter. Combine that with the high refresh-rate displays on phones, and you’re likely to get a better reading experience on the fly.

Twitter Gets High Contrast Colors And Buttons

Twitter’s design changes further go-ahead to include high contrast colors and buttons. While the high-contrast buttons are already there, the platform is yet to roll out the new color palette. High-contrast colors mean that the platform won’t have a bluish undertone anymore. It’ll be easier for you to see to focus on the photos and videos in the feed.

Twitter’s overall vibrance and vividity are likely to go up with these changes. It is also fair to say that Twitter can now make better use of the superbly color-accurate displays on your phones and laptops. Aside from the font and high-contrast colors, Twitter has also cleaned up the background a bit.

it says that there are fewer gray backgrounds now, increasing the readability of the tweets. The divider lines are also cleaned up now. Reduced gray space also means a darker dark mode, which looks more consistent. It’d be good to scroll Twitter without jitters of light black interrupting every now and then.

Rounding up, Twitter Design team has made these changes keeping the content at the center, which is good. So instead of focusing on the app, the focus now shifts to the feed or the content. We can also expect the platform to introduce more design changes, along with the rumored dislike button in the near future.
