Twitter debuts refreshed homepage for newbies

Unlike Facebook or Instagram, Twitter can be a little daunting for new users. To make the move into hashtagging easier, Twitter has unveiled a new homepage.

Home is where the #heart is

Twitter announced the news in a blog post.

"Starting today, when you go to the twitter.com homepage, you’ll find interesting topics to explore like Politics, Pop Artists and even Cute Animals.

"Click on the topic and you’ll see a timeline of Tweets from some of the most popular accounts in that topic. It’s rich real-time content, just like the Twitter experience for users who log in," wrote Twitter Product Manager Gabor Cselle.

Baby steps

Previously, new users would be greeted with a simple sign-in or sign-up option at Twitter.com.

By making the stream of tweets, hashtags and trending topics more accessible, Twitter might encourage more new users to sign up – something it's struggled with in the past. 

And on the flipside the refreshed homepage might make it easier for brands to connect with new followers.

The update is now available in the US, with a wider roll out expected in the coming months.
