New York: Twitter has decided to remove backgrounds from ‘Home’ and ‘Notifications’ tabs, media reported.
This would leave only a few pages on Twitter — such as single tweet, list, and collections pages — with backgrounds, buzzfeed.com reported. But even on these pages, the backgrounds may not last very long.
“We are removing background images from the home and notifications timelines on web for all users,” Twitter said in a statement.
The tweaks are part of Twitter’s effort to make its product easier to use. Removing the background would make pages look less cluttered and clearer, leaving the important stuff in the middle with no distraction.
