The new Twitter what's all the excitement about?

Twitter announce their new interface, which essentially makes it a lot more like Facebook – users will now be able to view multimedia (videos and photos mainly) within the Twitter stream, rather than having to click through to content hosted elsewhere.

This has previously been an area owned by 3rd parties like Tweetdeck and Tweetie, so it will be interesting to monitor how user numbers for these Twitter clients fall in the coming weeks. Twitter expect to roll out the interface over the next few weeks, but some users will be seeing the new look tonight.

The interface is thought to be very similar to that of the recently launched ipad app... more to follow when we get our hands on the new interface!
