Twitter Debuts New Mobile Site, Eats Its Own Dogfood


If you use Twitter frequently on your smartphone, there's a good chance you use a native Twitter client. Between apps like Tweetie on the iPhone, Twidroid on Android, and Seesmic on Blackberry, there's no shortage of quality apps that put advanced features at your fingertips. But, according to a post that just went live on the Twitter blog, there are still plenty of people who navigate to m.twitter.com, the Twitter mobile site that's about as spartan as they come. Tonight, Twitter is showing off a preview of the new mobile site it's working on, housed at mobile.twitter.com. And it's a big improvement.

There are quite a few obvious changes in the new version. First and foremost, you'll notice that it looks quite a bit nicer than the old version. And everything much more closely mirrors the desktop version of the Twitter.com homepage. As with the desktop version, you'll be shown Twitter's real-time search engine when you first visit the site.

More importantly, the new client includes all of the basic features that every Twitter client has had for years, but the old mobile client lacks.

Tonight, Twitter is showing off a preview of the new mobile site it’s working on, housed at mobile.twitter.com. And it’s a big improvement.


There are quite a few obvious changes in the new version. First and foremost, you’ll notice that it looks quite a bit nicer than the old site, with more color and a much improved layout. You’ll also see that everything more closely mirrors the desktop version of the Twitter.com homepage.


As with the desktop version, you’ll be shown Twitter’s real-time search engine when you first visit the site. More importantly, the new client includes all of the basic features that every Twitter client has had for years, but the old mobile page lacks. These include the ability to see @replies (mentions), favorited tweets, and direct messages. All of these were missing in the old version, but you’ll find them in a menu at the top in the new one. Some features, like recently-launched lists are still missing, though.


Other improvements include the addition of user profile pictures next to their tweets (you can turn these off if you’re on a slow connection), and a brief list of trending topics at the very bottom of the page.


Twitter’s blog post also notes that this was built using Twitter’s own APIs — in other words, it’s “eating its own dogfood” with the new mobile site (that’s what the title Takeout Dogfood on Twitter’s blog refers to). From the post:



‘M’ should also be fantastically innovative — naturally the best way to do that is use our own APIs. So, the mobile team here built a brand new mobile web client from scratch, using only Twitter APIs, and we’d like to share the results with you.


The Twitter blog post says that this works best on Webkit browsers, which are found on Android, the iphone, Nokia S60, and Palm OS. It’ll still work on other platforms, but the Twitter team hasn’t fine tuned it yet.


For comparison’s sake, here’s a shot of the old version (left) next to the new mobile site:

How to find ideas to post new article in your blog    阅读原文»   It is true that sometimes being a blogger may face situations where I would personally like to call it your brain juices got dried up as you have pretty much ran out of topic to blog and you are in crisis as your readers are anxiously waiting for your new posts but you are unable to give in.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left." Deadpan gallows humor: the only possible response to having Courtney Love as a client. (Besides asking for a hefty retainer.) [ P6 ] Before Lauren Conrad's contract expired in March, MT
