Twitter To Fix New Design After Several Complaints

Share post:

Twitter has agreed to fix its new design after receiving several complaints from users who noted the discomfort and headaches they experienced using the app with the new changes.

While Twitter announced a week earlier that the app will undergo a redesign that includes high-contrast colors and a custom font called Chirp, many users, especially those with accessibility needs, found it confusing, difficult to read and unpleasantly bright.

This review prompted Twitter to release another update, which stated: ‘We’re making contrast changes on all buttons to make them easier on the eyes because you told us the new look is uncomfortable for people with sensory sensitivities.”

While many users continue to complain about the new font across different platforms, the social media giant also said: “We’ve identified issues with the Chirp font for Windows users and are actively working on a fix” stating further that it was also exploring the possibility of having users choose their preferred font.
