Twitter redesign: a blessing in disguise

Twitter recently announced their redesign on their blog.

I'm going to assume you've read what The Verge wrote about this, in case you have not, here is a link.

My take is that Twitter's redesign, although not preferred, was necessary. In order for Twitter to increase its number of new users, it had to find a way to attract them, even if its solution was to do some resemblance with Facebook.
