As of today, everyone who uses Twitter now has access to the new Twitter. Whether you’re just signing up today or you’ve been a user for years, this new experience is finally real for everyone – all 160 million of you – and in six languages to boot.

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.

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.

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
