San Francisco, July 12 (IANS) Micro-blogging site Twitter is teasing its 321 million global users with an upcoming app redesign aimed at helping users see what's happening faster.
"A whole new Twitter is coming. New features and a new look are launching soon. Bookmarks, account switching, dark mode and so much more - before long, you'll be able to see what's happening even faster," a message on Twitter's desktop app reads.
Earlier in February, Twitter announced the idea of the prototype app "twttr" where it planned to test improved conversation features for its main platform.
Much like Gmail's feature, account switching would enable users using multiple accounts swiftly switch while staying logged into all of their accounts.
Since Twitter already features a dark mode for its mobile and dektop apps, it would be interesting to see what new tweaks will the micro-blogging site incorporate as part of its redesign.
Elaborate details about the release of the redesign remain unknown as of now.
From the beginning of this year, the social media giant has been exploring the idea of adding colour to replies -- a user who posts the initial tweet would see their responses in grey while replies from followers would be in blue.
To make conversations appear chat-like, Twitter has also been considering a new round design for replies.
In addition, the app has also been testing a "subscribe to conversation" feature that would notify users everytime a tweet is added to the conversation in order to keep up with it, without actually becoming a part of the thread.
New Delhi, Nov 17 (IANS) In what is seen as a major boost for the union territory (UT) of Ladakh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday launched winter grade diesel for the entire Ladakh region.
The Indian Oil Corp's (IOC) Panipat refinery has come up with a kind of diesel that can withstand the harsh winter conditions of the newly created UT where temperatures fall to sub zero of nearly -30 degree Celsius.
The winter grade diesel produced by Panipat Refinery for the first time has a pour point of - 33 degree C and does not lose its fluidity function even in the extreme winter weather of the region, unlike the normal grade of diesel which becomes exceedingly difficult to utilize. This winter grade diesel also meets BIS specification of the cleaner BS-VI grade diesel.
Amit Shah launched the supply of this special grade diesel in Ladakh via video conferencing from the national capital. Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and BJP MP from Ladakh, Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, were present on the occasion.
Shah said that this special diesel for Ladakh has been developed to address the problem of loss of fuel during extreme winter conditions. The project is said to have cost more than Rs 50,000 crore.
The first tank truck containing winter grade HSD has been flagged off from IOC's Panipat marketing complex. Subsequent supplies of such diesel would be sent from the Jalandhar Terminal to the Leh and Kargil depots to meet demands of customers in the Leh-Ladakh region during peak winters.
