Twitter is in the midst of an identity crisis. They grew up so fast that they never really got a chance to get comfortable with themselves. Zipping right from start-up to Internet mega-star is a shocking thing, and Twitter did it in just one year. Now that they've had some time to ponder, Twitter is switching things up and changing their image. They realize that their old homepage does a poor job of introducing new users to Twitter. They want something that has functionality and helps new people to adjust to the micro-blogging service. Next week, we'll get to see what the best homepage the Twitter team can design looks like. Twitter wants their new page to do a better job of reflecting them as a company. They intend to turn it into a central Twitter hub, that everyone who Tweets visits on a semi-regular basis because it has useful features. They want to add in more things like Twitter 101, a website that helps businesses use Twitter. Now that they have a corporate guide, I think they need to put out an “old people” guide. A little site that helps users who are new to the Internet, or at least social media, learn to Tweet. The next home page will also contain a search box and a bevy of information to help new users get acquainted to Twitter. They're even adding in a section on “Twitter trends” to help people keep up with what's going on in the world of Tweets, and help new users jump in without feeling totally lost. Do you have any suggestions for Twitter's homepage? Post them below!
