On Wednesday, Aug. 11, the giant online platform released the website's revamped version. The tech firm explained that the suddenly resigned platform would allow users to have more accessibility, less cluttered display, as well as smoother website usage.

Thanks to this update, people could soon have a more personalized experience on the online platform.

Derrit DeRouen, Twitter's Global Brand Creative Director (CD), provided more details about the new Chirp font.

He added that the new letter sign of the platform is also used at scale for motion and OOG. DeRouen added that the new Chirp font of Twitter offers a serious but fun-looking font to the platform's consumers.

Aside from the new font design, Twitter also removed some of the visual clutter on the website. Twitter refers to the new update as Unnecessary Divider Lines. On the other hand, you can also see that there are lesser blue colors and more gray backgrounds compared to the recent version.

Twitter is not the only one making changes. In other news, Signal also confirmed that users can now activate the app's popular Disappearing Messages feature as a default function.

Twitter Users Not Happy With New Chirp Font

After Twitter posted about the new font change, various users seem to be disappointed with the update. As of the moment, the company's latest tweet was able to generate more than 4,000 retweets, 13,000 quote tweets, and 40,000 likes.

Although this might be a great update, most of the commentators are sharing their disappointments. One of them criticized the new "Follow" design. He said that it seems like the platform wants him to follow and unfollow someone accidentally.

On the other hand, another user added that the "Follow" option should have a blank background, while the "Following" button should have a white design. As of the moment, Twitter hasn't released any comment regarding their complaints.
