Twitter just launched a new design that perfectly reflects top web design principles. One of my clients asked me today: Does it make sense to remove the HOME tab and just have the title link to the homepage or is this poor practice?
Here is Twitter’s rationale for Home: Home is where you view Tweets from the people you have chosen to follow. It’s your personal collection of Tweets, featuring the latest news, commentary and information from the sources you care about.
It’s now easier and faster to see the information that matters most to you. Immediately access your favorite features from the lefthand side. Photos, videos and conversations are embedded directly in Tweets so you can see the whole story at a glance. And now everything in Home will appear consistently across computers, iPhones, and Android mobile phones.
Home keeps everything you’re interested in all in one place.
Love being reminded of the power and magic of #Space:
