Micro-blogging site Twitter has announced that it is now rolling out its chirp font for the Twitter app and feed to revamp its website and app. The company expanded the Chirp font as part of a more comprehensive brand refresh. It launched in January, and now the company has said it is ready to use.
Twitter tweeted on Wednesday, “Today, we’ve released some changes to the way Twitter looks on the web and your phone. While it may sound strange at first, these updates make us more accessible, updated and focused on what you are talking about. In January, we revealed our new font, Chirp – and it’s ready for you to use today.
Twitter With its New Font and Looks
The company mentioned that all Western languages will now align to the left, making it easier to read while scrolling. Non-Western languages will remain unchanged. This month, the micro-blogging site shut down its Fleets feature like Instagram Stories. A previous report said that from August 3, Twitter users would only see Active Spaces, which are live audio chat rooms.
In a detailed source, Twitter says it intended to clear the clutter and focus more on its content with the design refresh. Buttons will now have high contrast colours, and there is a new colour palette for users who want to give a different look to their feed. Most of the changes are visible from today, including the desktop version and the app.
Notice anything different?

So far, we’ve seen the new font implemented on our desktop client, and it reminds us of the Google Sans font used by Pixel phones. At first glance, the chirp font looks clear in topics but needs integration while reading the tweet content.
