The page now features Twitter’s mobile app, a sign of the times. Mobile has seen an increase in usage over the years to Twitter and other social medium’s benefit. So why not highlight where the users eyes are coming from. Have you seen the new Twitter login page? Here is the old one:
And here is the new one:
We like the new page. It’s sleek and welcoming. And it’s clutter-free, something designers, first-timer users and overall Twitter fans seem to like.
Twitter by the Numbers

Twitter is on a mission to raise some serious capital, approximately $1B according to the company after details of their IPO became public last week and showed that the company wasn’t profitable as of yet.
But Twitter’s user base is on the increase according to dozens of reports and research agencies. With a good stock price, the IPO could help net them the cash, and the users they need to really make a dent in the social media landscape.
Twitter logout page is new as well
We wouldn’t want to end the post without mentioning the big changes to the logout page as well. Take a look. A much different look than the images of the mobile devices they used before.
