Twitter Axes ‘Old Twitter’

Here it comes, ready or not.

Twitter has finalized the mandatory rollout of its redesigned website, informally known as “New Twitter.”

Though Twitter’s updated look went public in September 2010, users could revert to the website’s old format if they wished. But now, that option is gone. New Twitter is the only version of the site available to users.

The company’s official Twitter feed (@Twitter) announced the end of “Old Twitter” on Monday afternoon. Twitter warned users on August 3 that the service would be switching from Old to New.

A recent poll of 418 Huffington Post readers found that 56 percent had already switched to Twitter’s new version. For those who were still clinging to the more familiar format, New Twitter includes helpful features like endless tweet streams, the ability to view photo or video media without leaving the stream where you found it–and more. Check out our slideshow of New Twitter’s features to see what the redesigned site has to offer.
