Here are some of the things you’ll learn in this show.

How to Use the New Twitter User Interface

Mari shares how this new interface was designed and guides you through the whole layout.  She shows you how it works and how you can use this new setup to improve your Twitter marketing.

The new Twitter UI (user interface) is a vast improvement on the old one.

What’s Better With the New Twitter?

The best thing is the new side panel because it improves your Twitter experience in a variety of ways.  As you look at your tweets on the left, you can click on the tweet, or the person’s name, and see extra information in the side panel on the right.

This new side panel is so useful because you can now see what’s referred to as inline media. This means you can see the different media links without leaving Twitter.

In this example, the side panel on the right opens up the YouTube video mentioned in the tweet.

But this isn’t the only thing that’s useful about the new Twitter, so be sure to listen to what Mari has to say.

What’s the Downside of the New Twitter?

There are only a few downsides to the new interface. One of them is that you can’t add a comment with the new Retweet button.  Another downside is that you can’t automatically reply to several people at the same time.  Listen to the video to learn more.

How to Use Your Twitter Clients With the New Twitter

Mari also shares how you can use the new Twitter user interface with popular Twitter clients.
