Fresh-Faced Twitter.com

I just visited twitter.com to discover their landing page has been redesigned. It’s a nice look, but what I like the most is the login, which drops down from a tab at the top of the layout. Disable JavaScript, and the button simply directs you to the old Sign In page.

They’ve also swapped out accolades from the likes of Wire and TIME, for three lists of trending topics—topics trending now, today, and this week. Still far less going on across the page. Even fits nicely on netbook-sized screens (at least 800×600)!

There is now a search field, which has a lot of focus, perhaps catering to those who would rather “see what others are tweeting” than log in and tweet.

With the large percentage of Twitter users spectating (and sadly, journalists quoting) tweets, regular users skipping twitter.com for their own client of choice, it might be good to take emphasis off the login and place it on search and trending topics.

What do you think?
