Early version of the new interface from August this year
A few months ago, Twitter revealed that it was testing a redesigned response interface based on threads of tweets. Started today, the company has opened a public test of the new interface and invites all users to sign up.

Twitter first started testing this threaded response interface in August, and some users quickly expressed their dislike with the new design. Essentially, the wireless response interface takes a Reddit-like approach to managing calls.
Twitter itself suggests that the new interface is designed to "make it easier to see more of what people say", according to The Verge . Replies from the original transmitter of the tweet are displayed in gray, while responses from the people you follow appear in blue.
Furthermore, the new response interface hides statistics on responses. This includes likes and retweet statistics, which now require the user to click on the answer to see.
How Twitter explains its beta test program:
Twitter explores new ways to make the conversations you care about easier to read, understand, and join. Want to see what we are working on and share your feedback? Apply to be part of our Twitter Prototype Program.
If you want to sign up for the Twitter test program, you can do so through this program. It is unclear when Twitter is planning to roll out this new design to everyone, but it will probably be faster than later, provided this public beta test goes well.
