Hi there,

Well, I must be the only person in the country to have switched to using the tweetdeck GUI because of the new website, I just don't like it!

But there are benefits of using tweetdeck, it means as I don't have to have the browser on, at work anyway, at home I just selected the older interface, I do hope that they give you an option of which UI to use.

Cheers,
MRb

I kind of like the new interface. It does break your custom background so I had to scurry and fix mine.

When I saw it, I only have a small ish monitor at home (15.5in) and 20 at work; so I only really saw a difference on my laptop, but, using tweet deck you kinda forgo that anyway..

I suppose that in time, it will change again, but for now, I still don't like it.

Cheers,
MRb

I've opted for the old style when visiting the site online, but they're going to force us all over to the new version soon enough. I spend a lot more time in TweetDeck as well. It's nice to have an alternative.

I love the new version as a user.
A tweet with a picture - click on it and I see the picture.
A tweet that is a reply - click on this tweet's background and the right column shows me the original tweet. Clicking on the original one let's me go one step back and so on so I see full conversation.
Also, when I go to other tabs and new tweets come in they will be hidden under the "X new tweets" button when I come back to Timeline tab. This is very nice.

They should now get a page preview tool for the right column so one does not need to leave twitter to read shared links.
The same will happen with Google probably
