Twitter CEO Dick Costolo introduced the revamped version on The Today Show Tuesday, only to disappoint users with Twitter for mobile that had no tappable clicks to URLs, hashtags or usernames in the timeline. When asked to define Twitter’s purpose, Costolo said, “Twitter brings you closer.” And in trying to bring users closer to their favorite tweeting celebrities and personalities, the latest version of Twitter gave new profiles to all users and also remade its mobile apps, keeping pictures in mind. The latest and upgraded Twitter now gives users a steady and no cluttered look, making way for enhanced user experience [+more]
