A Twitter user and software developer, Zusor, has shared a useful ‘do-it-yourself’ guide to bring back the old Twitter interface with just a few clicks, and has named it ‘GoodTwitter’.

To get the old interface, just open Twitter and follow these sequence of commands: Click on “(…) More” in the left-hand menu. Go to “Settings and privacy” > “About Twitter” > “Directory”. A new Twitter tab will open, click on “Home” and you will find the old user interface, The Next Web has reported.

So far, GoodTwitter has been downloaded by nearly 35,000 Chrome and Firefox users, attracting rave reviews on Reddit.

Twitter recently redesigned the interface for its website version, saying the new look is faster and easier to navigate, but a lot of people are not liking it.

As cricket fans from all over the world came to Twitter to talk about winning moments, shocking upsets, classic catches, and unique to this World Cup – the memes about the rain — #CWC19 became the top third hashtag this year.
