Twitter users immediately responded Thursday by tweeting jokes and memes critical of the changes.

The Twitter app is a free download from iTunes.

For now, Twitter's redesign is only available for iOS, and for good reason. The redesigned app might arrive sometime later for some users as Twitter appears to be still rolling out the changes. For existing Twitter users, it should simply make things more appealing, enhancing the overall experience, while for newcomers it should make the app easier to use and understand.

After a vigorous beta testing phase and numerous feedback from fervent tweeters, Twitter has finally rolled out a new look and a bevy of new features. In the Twitter iOS update, you will notice that you can now add stickers to your profile pictures. The update still doesn't bring other highly requested features, such as the ability to edit tweets once they've been posted. (NYSE: TWTR) is what's happening in the world and what people are talking about right now.

So, how do people feel about the new Twitter changes?

Another tweak means links to articles and websites now open will now open in Safari's viewer within the Twitter app so individuals can easily access accounts on websites they're already signed into. For more information, read the Twitter Blog.

Parker Herbert K sold $970,812 worth of Harman International Industries Inc (NYSE:HAR) on Monday, January 30. RBC Capital Markets maintained the shares of MMM in report on Tuesday, August 4 with "Underperform" rating.

The Retweet, Like, and DM icons also were revamped and changed. By default, those tabs are for Home, Search, Notifications (Mentions) and Direct Messages, according to Engadget.

Other changes in the Twitter iOS update include those that make the app more accessible.

When you click that photo, a menu that includes settings and privacy controls will slide out from the left-hand side of the phone screen. Of course, the website has to support Reader View in order for this function to work.

But not on the low-bandwidth version Twitter Lite or on the desktop site.

Icons are also now lighter, "for more seamless interaction". You can download Twitter from the App Store for free.

As you can see in the screenshots above, the app looks a lot cleaner than it has in recent memory.
