Micro-blogging site Twitter is testing a re-design layout for its desktop appearance, shuffling the positions of its in-app sections like Trends and navigation.

As part of the experimental re-design, Twitter divides the desktop into three columns, with trends shifted to the right, menu, navigation items and profile link have been moved to the left and the timeline has been positioned in the front and centre.

“A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to us that it is currently testing new experiences in the open that it is thinking of bringing to Twitter.com, for feedback with a small set of people. He didn’t provide a date for when it will roll out more broadly, but stay tuned,” TechCrunch reported on Wednesday.

In addition, the Home, Explore, Notifications, Messages, Bookmarks, Lists and Profile options are arranged in one column, with ‘More’ directing users to another set of options.

Twitter’s ongoing test mode – which has also been carried out on mobile, by way of its twttr prototyping app – is part of the company’s bigger effort to build a version of Twitter that works for everyone or at least more people, more of the time, the report said.

A Twitter post by an Indian journalist on Monday on the sale of cow-dung cakes in a US store for Rs 215 elicited witty responses from users.

“My cousin sent me this. Available at a grocery store in Edison, New Jersey. $2.99 only. My question: Are these imported from desi cows or are they from Yankee cows?” Samar Halarnkar tweeted on his handle @samar11.

The accompanying picture showed a packet of 10 cow-dung cakes, with the label duly informing prospective customers that the product was meant only for “religious purposes” and was “not eatable” (sic).

The post got quite a few humorous reactions. One user wrote: “Better to market them as ‘Cow Dung Cookies’ in the US.”

“It does not guarantee the ‘cakes’ are made from Cow-Dung from cows native to India,” said another user.

One tweet said: “Product of India”.

Another asked: “Is that from buffalo??? Raw material Input/output High!!!”

One raised suspicion on the quality of the product in a witty way: “Morality question is kya inka character dheela hai #sorrynotsorry.”

“If someone wants to eat them, they should be allowed to do so,” read a tweet.

One user reminded that “Religious or not, this is good fuel for conventional Punjabi cooking.”

In a cheeky play on words, one user said: “Isko dekh kar maine DUNG reh gaya.”

  1. Just wanted to call out Paul for his fantastic service through my home buying process – from identifying the best rate through to obtaining approval and settlement. This was my first home purchase and I think it’s fair to say that it would have been significantly more challenging without his help. Paul was on top of everything that needed to be done – going the extra bit in dealing with the bank and conveyance to ensure that the whole process was concluded smoothly. The best part was that Paul was always there to answer any questions and provide support, making life much simpler. Highly recommended! ww w.westernloanfinance .c om
