Twitter is turning its short-messaging website into a multimedia showcase by adding a new pane that will make it easier for its 160 million users to peruse photos and video.
The redesign unveiled Tuesday represents the biggest change to Twitter's website since the communications services service launched four years ago.
With the overhaul, the website will feature two panes. The one on the left will feature the posts, or "tweets," from the people and businesses that users elect to follow. The right side will be devoted to pictures, video and other information contained within the tweets so users won't have to navigate from their home pages.
Twitter says it may take a few days before the facelift is visible to all its users.
