New Twitter design unveiled (video)

Overhauled home page now includes pics and video in new stream

Redesign could spell trouble for third party Twitter clients.

Twitter has just unleashed a major overhaul of its homepage, giving you the chance to see a multimedia stream as well as a continuous ream of tweets from those you follow.

The new look, unveiled in San Francisco last night, now means you can see video and images directly on your Twitter home page. The social networking giant has inked deals with the likes of Flickr, Vimeo and YouTube to ensure easy integration too.

It all makes Twitter look even more useful and easy-to-use, but it will doubtless cause concern for the likes of TweetDech and Tweetie, who will feel Twitter is encroaching on their territory.

Take a look at the video below to see just how it works. If you’re a Twitter fanatic, the new design should appear on your home page soon. Tell us what you think by hitting up our Twitter page.
