Twitter is rolling out its new web interface to users globally, including several key features, like a newly designed emoji button.

TheNewsGuru (TNG) observed the most important changes are tiny shortcuts the  micro-blogging platform made to enable tweeting easier.

“Some of you got an opt-in to try it now. Check out the emoji button, quick keyboard shortcuts, upgraded trends, advanced search, and more. Let us know your thoughts,” Twitter tweeted of the new web interface.

A large, dedicated button in the tweet box makes it easier to add an emoji, an updated trending section appears on the right-hand side of the page, and little aesthetic updates make it easier to see who’s involved in a conversation.

The changes, alongside the way Twitter’s desktop version has condensed from three columns into two, should make it easier to both read and send tweets.

“Tried it yesterday – definitely an improvement,” a Twitter user said of the new web interface.

However, some users have expressed disappointment the update did not come with the much-awaited edit button.

Twitter chief executive officer (CEO), Jack Dorsey had said the micro-blogging platform was considering an option for users to be able to edit tweets.

On why the micro-blogging site lacks the feature, Dorsey said the platform was built on the SMS format of text messaging

“Maybe we introduce a 5-30 seconds delay in the sending of tweet and within that window, you can edit because the issue with going longer than that is it takes that real-time nature of the conversational flow out of it.

“Once you send a text, you can’t take it back. When you send a tweet, it goes to the world instantaneously. You can’t take it back,” Dorsey said.

“When are you planning to have an edit button @jack for the posts? You know people make mistakes sometimes when they tweet,” a user queried.

However, Twitter did not immediately reply the query.
