New improvements

Changes have been made to improve usage. Honestly, some changes might not be considered improvements, so provide feedback if there’s anything you dislike. Especially the ordering and layout of things can be done in many different ways.

Home page and landing pages

  • Moved “More…” to the right side. Seems more logical and they then don’t interfere with the section titles anymore.

Landing pages

  • A few more “Share” options: Digg, Reddit and Print.
  • Moved “Rating” to under “Latest by”.
  • Added a text under “Comments” if the user is not logged in.
  • Fixed a bug that caused comments to be made for the last message in the “Latest by” list, rather than for the message shown on the page.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to remove comments on others’ messages.

Note that you need to be logged in to be able to rate or comment.

Menu changes and Partners page

Ringtones has been removed (for now at least) and Register has been moved away a bit so that the most essential menu items are to the left.

A Partners page has been added, intended for potential licensees of the Twitizer technology. Not much is there at the moment.

New feature: Visible arguments in link on Timeline and Users pages

By now showing the link arguments it’s possible to bookmark them, to quickly get to e.g. one’s own Timeline page, the beginning of the Users list etc.

This also means that when going back to the Timeline page from a landing page by using the Back button in the browser you no longer get the dreadful ‘repost’ message.

New features: ‘Latest by’, larger timeline pictures and new slogan

Added a ‘Latest by’ row of content to the message landing pages, for easy access to other recent content by that user that contains images, videos or audio (but not text only), provided there’s any of course. We are considering showing text only messages as well, somehow. They are currently only shown on the Timeline page, and are of course posted to Twitter, like any other message sent to Twitizer.
The pictures shown on the Timeline page are now twice the size for easier viewing. The user icons are the same size as before (same as on Twitter). 6 messages are shown per page.
The slogan has been changed to ‘Sharing is caring!’. It’s more casual, meaningful and comprehensible than ‘Mobilizes Twitter’, but still slightly inane, so we’ll see if it sticks. Feel free to comment.
