I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Twitter has launched a new new design. I love it and I think you will too, but I’m not going to review it here, I’m just going to tell you how you can get the new design early, if you don’t already have it.
According to Twitter, the new new design will be rolling out to everyone over the next few weeks but there is a way to get it early. If you have an iPhone or an Android, simply download the new Twitter app to your phone, launch the app and soon thereafter you should see the new design the next time you log in on your computer. It took a couple hours to happen for me but it did work.
Tip: If you already have the Twitter app on your phone just upgrading to the new version should work, if not, remove the app and download again from scratch.
Update: As you’ll see in the comments, many people are saying this trick is not working for them. Twitter says it will but if it doesn’t, the only choice is to wait till they finally roll the new layout out to everyone. I’m not sure what’s taking so long, but Facebook took a couple months to get the new Timeline rolled out.
