Twitter New Fonts In Details
Twitter is making changes to its Web and mobile apps to make them less cluttered and easier to use. The design changes are intended to make Twitter “more accessible, unique, and focused” on users and what they are saying. The addition of a new font called Chirp is one of the changes.
This font family, which was released in January, is a mash-up of American Gothic and European Grotesque styles. It incorporates handcrafted quirks of early woodcut specimens.
The social media platform announced the design changes on its Web, Android, and iOS platforms via its official Twitter Design account. The interface colors have been updated to provide more contrast and less blue.
This change is intended to increase the visibility of photos and videos shared on the platform. Twitter says it is also looking to provide users with new palette options, including new color options, in the near future.
Twitter is also introducing new high-contrast buttons to make the “most important actions” stand out. Changes have also been made to the ‘Follow’ button. It is now black in color, which makes it easier to see what actions you’ve taken at a glance.
Though some users did not like the new color of the follow button which is now black.
The visual clutter has been reduced to make the text easier to read and the media more visible. Twitter has reduced the number of grey background areas and eliminated unnecessary divider lines. It also increased the space between texts to make reading easier.
The Chirp font is now available to all Web, Android, and iOS app users. Previously, Twitter’s platforms used fonts such as SF Pro, Roboto, and Helvetica Neue.
Chirp is Twitter’s first proprietary typeface, and it aims to be sharp and legible (with good density) while also retaining personality and distinctiveness. The font was created in collaboration with the Swiss-type foundry Grilli Type Foundry.
Some users also compared the font change and icon redecoration.
