Twitter Survey Says Users Are Undecided About New Interface

If you are a user of Twitter, and you don’t use a Twitter client, you have probably had checked out the new Twitter.com user interface that they released a few weeks ago. The main difference is that the page is twice as wide as it was before, having the regular Twitter feed plus a secondary area showing extra information, such as linked maps, videos etc.

A survey carried out by Ask Your Target Market.com says that out of 400 people surveyed, only 29% said they thought the redesign was a big improvement, whilst 58% said that they were unsure. 20% said that crashes and outages were the biggest problems with the service whilst 19% found the lack of profile customisation to be an issue.

What this data seems to suggest is that those that were surveyed are overall not too impressed with the new user interface. With only 29% of people saying that they like the new interface, and 33% saying that Twitter will be considered a success in 5 years, according to this survey Twitter won’t be surviving for long.

However, this is only a small survey. What do you think? Let us know in the comments. If you are having difficulty deciding, check out other stories about Twitter here, or follow me @jonathancordes
