Twitter’s new design to get fix after headache complaints

  • BBC article from 16th August. Highlights:
    • “Twitter is making changes to its new redesign, after users complained of headaches and discomfort.”
    • “Unveiled only last week, the redesign mainly involved high-contrast colours and a custom-designed font, Chirp.”
    • Its aim was to “improve content consumption and clean up ‘visual clutter’. But many, especially with accessibility needs, found it confusing, hard to read and uncomfortably bright.”
    • Users have reported the font being smaller and denser, so are having to strain their eyes more to read.
  • Twitter Accessibility have confirmed that fixes are on the way.
