If you're a regular tweeter, you won't have noticed any changes, but Twitter's homepage has gone through a full-on redesign. You'll have to log out and visit the homepage to see it. The 'new' Twitter isn't going to change things for current users, but people new to the service will find that the revamped website does a much better job of drawing them into the world of tweets.

Twitter's whole goal for this redesign was to make their service more accessible to late-adopters, people who haven't yet jumped on the tweeting bandwagon. With this new page, they hope to show potential new users 'the power of Twitter as a discovery engine', according to the most recent blog post.

The new page consists of a 'sign up' box, a box to search for recent tweets, and a list of popular tweet topics scrolling across the bottom of the page. New visitors are able to see at a glance the kind of topics people are discussing. Twitter's hope is that they'll click on one or more topics, get engrossed in a series of tweets, and decide to sign up themselves to get in on the action. I think this new webpage is definitely an improvement over the old one. It's simple, well laid out, and manages to be filled with useful information without looking cramped or off-putting. You can check the website out here to decide for yourself.
