As of today, everyone who uses Twitter now has access to the new Twitter. Whether you’re just signing up today or you’ve been a user for years, this new experience is finally real for everyone – all 160 million of you – and in six languages to boot.

Since twitter announced the new Twitter four weeks ago, they’ve closely watched Tweets and user comments. They’ve received lots of great feedback that will help as they continue to make Twitter.com even better.
So while they still (and will always) have plenty of work to do, theye’re pleased with the positive reaction so far. People are telling them that they love that theye’ve kept the timeline simple while also providing a richer experience through the details pane. You can now dive deeper into a Tweet and see more details, like recent replies, the bios of other accounts mentioned in it, and photos and videos from media partners like Flickr, YouTube, USTREAM and yfrog.

Not sure how to access the new Twitter? Check for the blue bar at the top of Twitter.com, and click on the yellow “Try it now!” button to give it a shot. You’ll be able to switch between both the old and new versions of Twitter for the next few weeks. After that, everyone will just use the new version.
