twitterlogo Have you tried the New Twitter? While it’s slated to become active as a preview over the next several weeks, you are able to toggle between the two versions until the New Twitter becomes, well, Twitter.

What does the New Twitter have that Old Twitter doesn’t? The list includes @mentions, retweets, searches, and lists above your timeline on the left of the screen, and Twitter partnerships with DailyBooth, DeviantART, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, TwitVid, USTREAM, Vimeo, yfrog and YouTube that allow you to embed photos and videos.

In addition, additional info is shown when you click a Tweet, including @replies, other Tweets by that same user and a map of where a geotagged Tweet was sent from. Plus, a mini profile pops up when you click a @username so you don’t have to navigate away from the page.

Here’s what people have to say:

  • morgan2303: How do you reply to tweets on the #newtwitter? Way to confusing for my liking.
  • JEBowman: Love the #newtwitter!!!
  • zhartley: Mixed feelings about #newtwitter. There are interesting features, but it definitely needs some refinement. Feels off.
  • missbeasley52: I actually kind of like the #newtwitter. makes things easier with all the riveting stuff I have to say. :/

What do you have to say? Are you looking forward to the #NewTwitter?
