Not Your Grandma's Twitter!



Twitter has unveiled sweeping new changes to the social network in the biggest shake-up of the site since its launch.

The fresh design, launched with the name Fly Twitter, will be introduced to the social network's 100 million users in the coming weeks. According to The Guardian UK, the new site has redesigned profile pages.

There are 4 "key areas" identified as Home; Connect; Discover; and Me. Twitter said one of the most significant introductions was its Discover page, which features trending topics and popular discussions from around the web. The Connect tab is home to users' mentions, retweets and new followers.

In a blogpost on Twitter's official website, the firm said the changes are "just the beginning".

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
