Twitter Alters Contrast and Fonts after Users Complain of Eye Strain and Headaches

Changing its new design that had been launched just last week, Twitter paid heed to its user grievances and altered the contrast and fonts to make the visual experience of the platform much smoother.

The redesign that was floated last week mainly involved high-contrast colors and a custom-designed font called Chirp. Unfortunately, these design changes didn’t do well with some Twitter users who complained of getting headaches and discomfort while using the freshly designed app.

At the time of the design launch, Twitter did in fact warn users that it “might feel weird at first” but would improve content consumption and clean up “visual clutter”. But, alas, many, especially with accessibility needs, found it confusing, hard to read, and uncomfortably bright.

In response to these concerns, Twitter posted, “We’re making contrast changes on all buttons to make them easier on the eyes because you told us the new look is uncomfortable for people with sensory sensitivities. We’re listening and iterating. We’ve identified issues with the Chirp font for Windows users and are actively working on a fix. Thanks for your patience and please let us know if you have additional feedback.”
