Twitter Starts Rolling Out Simplified Web View, Preps Updated Dark Mode

Twitter today announced that it has started rolling out a new, simplified interface on the web, which is available to some users starting today.

Twitter is gaining an emoji button, quick keyboard shortcuts, an upgraded trends feature, an advanced search interface, and more.

Twitter is also working on an updated Dark Mode feature, according to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. In a reply to a Twitter user complaining about the current Dark Mode interface, which is more of a dark blue than black, Dorsey said Twitter is planning to fix it with true black color in the future.

Was just talking about this with @kayvz. Will fix.
