    I really do despair when nerds and marketing types are unleashed on websites in order to make 'improvements'.

    As I customarily read from left to right (maybe because I'm left handed) the new layout is absolutely dreadful, given the relavant content i.e. the twats, are on the right hand side.

    New layout? It's been like this for bloomin ages matey.

    Personally I think it is an absolutely massive improvement on the old layout.

    But then again, my job is being one of those "nerdy types who are unleashed on websites in order to make 'improvements'." However....I prefer the word geek. And just to prove it, today I am wearing:

    What gets me is all those who say they could have improved the website and made it better than actual web designers!! Why don't you change career then?? :y7:

    Twatter is shite anyway, its full of keyboard wariers.

    Why can't people use the internet for what it was designed for.

    Thats just a by product and a secondary reason for the internet.

    We all know the two reasons it was invented, the rest just followed. :)

    Well on my screen it only changed last night.:07: Most odd.

    EDIT: Just to prove I'm not totally bonkers, I came across the following, posted yesterday. I've been lucky to last this long.:9898::9898:

    I don't get why people bash it so much. Twitter is one of those things you get out what you put in.

    If you follow stupid things, you see stupid things. And there's a hell of a lot of it on there. But most stuff is good.

    Like TV, there's a lot of shit on the old giggle box. But you don't say all of TV is sh!t and you prefer the radio.

    I like Twitter mainly for keeping up to date with what's happening on the motor racing scene.

    But then there's always things like, interesting news stories:
    https://twitter.com/#!/BBCNews/status/170221941930733569

    I tried a time lapse on my new iPhone, so thought I'd share it with some astronomers:
    https://twitter.com/#!/LaborneRacing/status/170213574621409281

    and how did I get my new iPhone. From this Tweet:
    https://twitter.com/#!/t3dotcom/status/168643076112396289
    whereby I found I could get a BRAND NEW iPhone 4S for FREE

    And then I enjoy the fun tweets:

    Oh goody! I love Twitter. So, that must mean I'm still a kid!!! :y2:

    My Twitter timeline on match days is most amusing, as I read what fellow Yids are making of our performance. And I've made at least 3 cyber chums from there too (people who I now know & care enough about to have promoted them to Facebook friends!!).

    I'm very picky, though! If I get any oddbods following me, I block them! I don't want to have gazillions of followers, littering up my timeline. I'd rather keep my group small & full of pleasant & interesting people, who make me laugh!

    Nah, someone's already tried that one (i.e. setting up an account and pretending to be Niko).

    With my degree in Niko-ology, I knew it was a fake from the start. Meanwhile, over 1000 muppets (including at least one from this forum - he knows who he is!!) were following the a/c, believing it to be the real deal.

    Not wanting any bad publicity for our lovely no. 21, I informed the press manager at THFC, who e-mailed me back, confirming that Niko definitely did not have a Twitter a/c. He thanked me for reporting the matter and promptly got the a/c closed.

    So, tough luck [MENTION=6666]Rivron[/MENTION]! You can't stalk me!! :1132:

    That's the new one. It changed on my iPhone before Christmas, then a couple days later on my desktop version.

    This is mine:

    It's nice and clean and reads very easily.
