This is the new look of Twitter. It will roll out to everyone over the next two weeks. I don't have much to say about it at this point.

The interface is clean and most everything seems to be easily accessible with the exception of direct messages, which are now buried a couple clicks deep.

One important change is the ability to embed tweets, a function that outside services like Storify had come to provide. Now there is an official way to stick tweets in blog posts. E.g.:
