Twitter Tweaks Desktop Profile Design With More Prominent Messaging Buttons
Twitter made several subtle changes to its desktop product today, most notably a redesign of the messaging buttons on user profile pages.
That change — replacing an unobtrusive white box with a solid, brightly colored button or buttons (see screen grabs below) — seems aimed at taking the guesswork out of how to connect with other Twitter users, including brands and businesses. Now when users arrive at another profile, they will see a “Tweet to” button or a “Tweet to” and a direct message button. The DM button only appears when a user can DM the user in question.
