"As always, we'll continue to listen to your feedback and we have more design updates coming soon", Twitter said.
The move comes at a time when Twitter faces an onslaught of competition from Facebook properties like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp but also fast movers like Snap Inc's Snapchat.
In a blog post, Kim said the changes were meant to bring the product in line with changes to the brand made previous year (when Twitter started reminding everyone that it's all about live) though it sounds like Twitter is still trying to improve things for new users.
The update brings profile, settings, privacy, and additional accounts under one roof, thanks to a new navigation menu on the side. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
"A new side navigation menu and fewer tabs are the bottom of our app equals less clutter and easier browsing", reads an excerpt from the media release.
The third new feature that we wanted to talk about is the fact links will open up in Safari.
Those using iPhone will notice links opening in Safari's viewer within the Twitter app, making it easy to access accounts on websites they're already signed into. The new font, as Twitter wrote on its blog, makes things more consistent.
The reply button will look like a speech bubble rather than an arrow, and Twitter is tweaking its typeface.
On the iOS app, the counts for replies, retweets and likes update instantly, so you know exactly how a tweet is being received by the community. Those beta testing the app should see the design changes today. The new Twitter update for iOS makes it more like the Android version of the app.
Some of the changes that Twitter is introducing also appear to be the company's way of making its app more easily usable for newcomers.
Twitter Lite doesn't not come in the list of the usual apps found on the Apple App and Google Play Store.
