The design is rolling out gradually now, but if you don't have it yet, you can go ahead and try it by clicking on your avatar and selecting "Try the new Twitter". But it's likely the desktop functionality is tailored to new or casual users, with a focus placed on usability over content.
Easy Access to Your Favorite Features: Bookmarks, Lists, and your Profile are right up front and have their own spot on the side navigation, making it easier and faster to jump between different tabs. It's the fruit of a almost two-year development effort that saw Twitter not only overhaul the interface but also merge the desktop site's code base with that of the mobile version. Despite its several new features, there are still people who do not want to use it. On the old website, tabs for Home, Moments, Notifications and Direct Messages were at the top.
According to the social media firm, Twitter.com has been revamped to make the platform faster, easier to navigate and more personalised.

Amazon Alexa Could Soon Live on Your Windows 10 Lockscreen
It has been a long time since Microsoft partnered with Amazon to bring Alexa into the lives of Windows 10 users. The things start at a hair below £2k for the i7 Nvidia machine, topping out at £3,149 with all the knobs on.
If you haven't seen the earlier test versions of the new design, the most jarring change will be getting used to the fact that nearly nothing is in the same place as before.
Within the brief advert, Twitter reveals that users will be able to use bookmarks, swap between accounts, and enable a dark mode among "so much more". The new look makes the desktop web experience more consistent with the Twitter you see on other devices. The good news is that since it's a progressive web app, the company can make quick retouches where necessary. The perhaps biggest change is that the new interface moves Twitter's navigation buttons from the top to a large sidebar on the left of the timeline. This feature is already available on the mobile app. The new UI will also make it easier for users to access numerous popular features, and with more customization options, said the company.
A real extension of the mobile app, the updated site includes dark mode options Dim and Lights Out, as well as the ability to change font size and color scheme (choose from blue, yellow, pink, purple, orange, or green).
