Twitter has just rolled out a major redesign including new apps for iOS and Android. Twitter is making it clear that it wants users' experiences to be the same, regardless of where they access "Home" (tweets from the sources you care about). This means that users should be able to see all the same information, via Home, on their computer or on their mobile device — iPhone or Android. There's also connect to see who followed, mentioned you, retweeted or favourited one of your tweets. Discover lets people tap into stories and trends.
