Twitter has begun testing a new sidebar menu with some of its iOS users. It began as a simple social network. At the time, the Twitter app was merely a Facebook substitute. Twitter gained features over time, making it a fuller app. Direct messages now support voice notes and audio rooms. Twitter Blue eventually launched. Subscriptions provide consumers with extra privileges. The app’s sidebar menu grows as its features do. Twitter is sending out a new, more organised sidebar menu to iOS users.
According to the Twitter highlights, the new sidebar menu includes a main space for Twitter Blue, topics, bookmarks, and lists. There are three expandable, broader categories beneath these sections. The remaining sections are classified as Creator Studio, Professional Tools, and Settings and Support. The redesign certainly cleans up the sidebar menu and makes it easier on the eyes.
This minor, server-side change is much appreciated. That’s because the company is clearly changing course. Twitter is no longer just a simple app. To adapt to these changes, the mobile app must maintain control. Otherwise, many users will become disoriented when attempting to navigate through the new sections that it introduces on a regular basis.
