Twitter has just released a brand new version of its iOS Twitter client to the App Store. It features a brand new look for the iPhone version. Completely redesigned, this new 4.0 version is part of Twitter's big redesign that was announced today. It will affect their entire array of products, including the Twitter website. As you'll see, Twitter has re-imagined its service around four concepts: Home, Connect, Discover and Me. As described by Twitter:
- Home is where you start from: a personal collection of Tweets from the sources you care about. The Tweet details show rich information such as replies, retweets and embedded images.
- Connect is the place to see who followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets. It’s where you keep the conversation flowing.
- Discover is where you can tap into the stories and trends people are talking about in your world. You can also find friends, browse interests, and explore hashtags here.
- Me puts you and your interests front and center. From here you can exchange Direct Messages with your followers.
