Twitterfountain User Interface

The Twitterfountain project has been online for more than 2 years, and has seen many changes. Recently we upgraded to version 2.0, a huge upgrade that has been getting lots of attention. When reading user feedback and watching our Google Analytics, it became clear that the interface could use some clarification, and doesn’t need some of the more complex options.

This inspired me to sketch a new user interface. The new design hasn’t been implemented yet but here’s a preview:

When visiting the homepage, we might present the user with a simple dialog that allows them to customize the homepage immediately, using just a few mouse clicks.

Selecting sources also becomes easier and more versatile.

Some advanced options are still available by clicking the ‘more’ tab.

Sharing becomes a whole lot easier, since you can now just email or tweet a URL to a twitterfountain. Embedding a widget still remains an option.
