Amazon, AOL Video, Gowalla, Foursquare, Meetup and Plancast are the newest social tools to be integrated with, allowing users to access more multimedia content without leaving the site.

When Twitter unveiled #NewTwitter last year, one of its big selling points was its direct integration with third-party tools such as DailyBooth, iTunes, Ustream, YouTube and TwitPic. It gave users the ability to see images or watch videos directly in their Twitter stream as long as a link from a supported service appeared in the tweet.

In December, Twitter added five more services to the roster of supported platforms:, Instagram, Slideshare, Rdio and Dipdive.

Now supports six more third-party services within the stream. Whenever your friends tweet out a link from Foursquare, Gowalla, Amazon, Meetup, Plancast or AOL Video, multimedia from that service will appear. Twitter seems to be in the process of rolling out the new integrations now. You can check out an example of it here.

Google has begun testing a new design for its search engine results page, one that sports a new color scheme and a lot more white space.

A Google representative confirmed to us the company is conducting one of its user tests. As you can see from the screenshot below, the redesign results page incorporates a tweaked color scheme. The greens, purples and blues are not as harsh as the current set of colors used on

The bigger changes focus on separating and spacing out individual search results. There is simply a lot more white space around each search result and each link. Also, each search result is divided by a dashed line.

Combined, the changes are rather dramatic for a search engine used by millions of people daily. Google is gathering data on how people react to the new changes. Those numbers will determine whether or not these changes will move out of testing and become permanent.

This isn’t the only Google experiment to make headlines this month. On Monday, the tech giant began testing Voice Search integration on

Twitter Gets A Makeover

Published by pratyushkp on September 16th, 2010 - in Social, Technology

Twitter has unveiled a new design for it websites user interface.

Twitter is all set to tweet a new tune after its user interface has been redesigned to make it more feature rich and attractive to users.

The New Changes Users Will Have To Get Used To Are

? Twitter has introduced a dual-panel layout that allows embedded photos and videos, which means pictures and videos will play immediately on the right side of the page, without users needing to open additional tabs or browser windows. Twitter has partnered with 16 media companies, including YouTube, Flickr, TwitPic and Vimeo, to get permission to embed media from those sites onto

? Users can now click on a Tweet, opening up additional information about the tweet in a second panel. For example, if you click the Twitter handle, the right pane will show that person’s mini-profile in the same window. In the past, clicking on the handle would open a new window, forcing users to leave the Twitter timeline.

The feature has been rolled out to select users and will slowly be rolled to other users by the end of this month.
