when twitter rolls out a new update with no warning

Nice, they made Twitter ugly as hell

There are just a few other problems people think warranted a fix first.

twitter: what do you want users: stop banning people for standing up to assholes twitter: everything is bubbles now

everyone: wed like twitter to be a safer place to express yourself twitter: got it less sharp corners safety first

the floor is twitter actually fixing problems and at least having a good design

Like making an edit button.

Twitter: okay guys, what do you want? We: An EDIT Button Twitter: What? a new Twitter UI We: No.. No.. "EDIT" butto… https://t.co/H7FHBqRuqc

twitter users: let us edit tweets twitter: the stars are now hearts twitter users: an edit button please twitter: we made everything round

Or, I dunno, fewer Nazis.

TWITTER: what do users want? USERS: fewer nazis, mostly TWITTER: what if we did a graphical redesign instead

twitter users: you should round up these Nazis twitter: ok, here you go

Twitter: ok how can we improve the website Users: half my mentions are nazis saying they wanna gas me Twitter: the avatars are now circles

Though some liked the change.

New Twitter Design -- I like. Needs a little getting used to but welcome changes. #Twitter

Well I like the new twitter design 🙊 don't attack me pls 😂 #NewTwitter

People are imagining what could have possibly served as the inspiration for the redesign.

the new twitter looks like when a cw show wants to reference twitter but they haven’t cleared it so they mock up a clone called like Bloggy.

And imagining what could possibly be next for the site.

Next twitter update: Triangular avatars, 18pt Comic Sans font. No admin tools for DM groups.

But still, pretty much everyone agrees: There's no quitting this site.

we'll get used to the new twitter changes because we are all imprisoned on this hell website
