Yes, Twitter has once again changed the font it uses. There is only a small difference. The lowercase Ls are different because their bases are curved, the uppercase Is have serifs, and the zeroes have a line across them. There have been some changes to Twitter names. Verge was the first to report on the change.
Twitter Changed its Font Again
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment, so the reasoning for the typeface change remains a mystery. Surprisingly, the firm hasn’t posted anything on @TwitterSupport, where it’s published a number of recent product updates.
However, numerous Twitter users have reported the change. Author of “Web3 is Going Just Great” Molly White noted that the digit 0 had a slash across it. It is now less of a challenge to see the difference between an uppercase I and a lowercase L, which may make it more difficult for scammers to disguise their identities in this way.
It’s important to note that these modifications have only been seen on the web and the mobile web. Unfortunately, the updates have not yet been propagated to the iOS app. But I’m hoping it’ll eventually be available on every other device as well.
Let’s see what Elon Musk has to say about these alterations before we act. While you wait, feel free to share your thoughts on the new alterations in the area below.
