Twitter’s new font is the change no-one asked for


Share This Article:

It’s been dubbed the “eye-strain Twitter font” that “no-one wanted or needed”.

But the social media site has continued the roll-out of its new desktop font despite a backlash from users.

While some people first saw the font in May, it’s a new addition for many logging on in the last 24 hours.

And it’s not an altogether positive reaction from users who have a list of wants from the site which come way ahead of a new font.

The main complaint is the size of the font, which people say makes it tricky to read.

Just last month, Twitter reported a revenue drop and a slowdown in user growth in its latest financial results. The number of people using the service remains at 328 million for the second quarter in succession.

But it seems some of those users are fans of the font change.

There’s just not very many of them.
