2019’s New Twitter Features that will make your Twitter experience easy

Following are the main features Twitter has upgraded to:

The Compose Highlight

The new Compose highlight has been somewhat changed also, with choices to incorporate a photograph, GIF, survey or emoticon now all in the base left — with the emoticon button presently swapping in for location button, due to lack of use of the latter.

Advanced Search Filters

Search got an update, also, which puts tabs for moving between “Top,” “Latest,” “People,” “Photos” and “Videos” at the top of the screen, with Advanced Search Filters on right side.

For those with different Twitter accounts, you would now be able to switch between them from the fundamental route.
In any case, the most observable change is the association and format of the Twitter home screen itself.

The Downside is…

…that the new navigation sidebar consumes a lot of browser space. This steals attention from the tweets themselves.

What you can do…

…is that you can make the webpage smaller, which conceals the navigation items’ names, leaving just their symbol, or enlarge tweet font size.

Why the Upgrade to Begin With?

Twitter most likely took this design option to streamline its utilization by progressively easygoing clients and newcomers. The organization has battled with client development since its commencement, changing how it reports metrics to portray its business. Losing your way around the new Twitter is going to be very unlikely now. It’s that simple.
