Is Getting a Facelift

Emoji button, quick keyboard shortcuts and tweaks to Trends for You, search

The new-look Twitter

Tweaks are coming to, and users who receive opt-in messages can be part of the first group to preview them.

Twitter said (via tweet, naturally) that features being added to its web experience include an emoji button, quick keyboard shortcuts, updates to its Trends for You section and improvements to search.

The redesigned comes on the heels of the social network’s news from CES earlier this month that it will begin testing a host of new features for users and publishers, including redesigned threads and Facebook-like statuses and indicators informing followers when people are online.
