Twitter Flips Switch On New Homepage For People Who Aren’t Logged In


Twitter, aiming to provide a more enticing landing spot for the millions of visitors who don’t sign into its network, unveiled a new homepage today.

The new page is essentially the same as the one Twitter has been testing for the last couple months. We wrote about it here and here.

The new page is live today for U.S. desktop users and will be pushed to other locations over time.

Now instead of a dead-end login page with no content, people who aren’t logged into Twitter are presented with a selection of topics — Politics, Pop Artists, General News Sources, Cute Animals and Tech Blogs & Reporters, for instance. The topics are laid out in text in the left rail and in a two-column tiled grid in the middle of the page.


Clicking through to any of the topics leads people to a selection of tweets from “some of the more popular accounts in that topic,” Twitter product manager Gabor Cselle wrote in a blog post. “It’s rich real-time content, just like the Twitter experience for users who log in.”

By giving logged-out users an immediate taste of what Twitter has to offer, the company is hoping to entice more of them to join its ranks of 288 million monthly active users. Twitter has struggled to meet investor expectations for user growth in recent quarters, but has been emphasizing that more than 500 million people visit its network monthly without logging in.

Now those visitors have more reasons to stick around.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
