Twitter Launches New How-to Site on Spruced-Up Homepage
If you still don't have a Twitter account (or just want to bone up on the best way to use yours if you do), then relax -- help is on the way. According to All Things Digital, Twitter just launched a new site called 'Twitter 101' and redesigned its homepage in a bid to make the site more intuitive than ever -- and hopefully attract more business users in the process.
Co-founder Biz Stone said that 'Twitter 101' aims to make it easier for businesses to understand how to best use the micro-blogging site. To go along with this how-to-guide, Stone also said Twitter will launch a redesigned homepage featuring a search box, Twitter trends, and more specific information on how to get the most out of the service. The old homepage was boringly plain, although that's not a bad thing -- Google seemed to do okay with its simple homepage.
We would be remiss if we didn't call out Stone and the Twitter folks, however, for being a tad late to the party. Readers might recall a recent 'Twitter 101' post right here on Switched with much of the same information. Kudos to Twitter for attempting to make its service easier for users -- and feel free to mail that royalty check to us anytime. [From All Things Digital]
