TwitterThe big news yesterday was that Twitter announced the launch of their new Twitter design. The new design is aimed at making it easier to use and easier to find and discover things within the ecosystem.

My favorite parts of the announcement is a new TweetDeck for Chrome and Mac OS App Store plus the new app and finally the embeddable tweets.

On the search side, Greg Sterling reported that the search was improve but said, "although no one could tell me specifically what they were."

Here is an embedded tweet:

You can see the embed tweet link when you view the tweet detail page:

Then a pop up box comes up with the embed options:

To see more details on the new features, designs and ability to discover new content, see fly.twitter.com. To get it yourself, just update your mobile app and Twitter should give you the new features on Twitter.com soon after.

If you are a brand, you probably want to read this.

All of the major social networks have been undergoing changes, both in design and product offerings.  It's important for the networks to improve and evolve over time in order to remain relevant.

This is my take on it immediately after it went live yesterday evening (UK time): http://www.seo-trench.com/2011/12/09/new-twitter-design-is-now-live/ Anyone else notice that the canonical tag on your profile page now points back to www.twitter.com instead of your profile?

The competition is indeed getting tougher among social media websites. Google Plus right now is thinking of adding a great app for local businesses and for those who love to check in locations. Facebook allows business users to "decorate their pages." Now this. If only everyone would know how to use these changes to their benefit.
