You asked. Twitter listened.

If you're a diligent reader of this blog, you may have remembered our earlier post, 'Twitter’s email notifications need a 5-minute mobile makeover'. In the aftermath, hundreds of folks like yourself lobbied Twitter to make their notifications more mobile friendly, using a simple fix we outlined.

As it turns out, they listened.

If you've viewed Twitter email notifications on a mobile device recently, you may have noticed that alongside their new branding, they've gone for a much more mobile-friendly format. Changes included upping the font size, hiding not-so-critical text and making the 'Reply to...' unmissable. They've even switched the orientation of their Twitter ribbon to make for a more balanced design - from left on the desktop, to right on small screens.

After the redesign

A huge thanks to the Twitter team for listening to what we all had to say, not to mention, working these changes so elegantly into their rebranded emails.

    How funny. I did notice that all of a sudden the emails I got from Twitter looked much better. I love how you clearly outlined the problem, your solution to the problem, and then gave people an opportunity to share the idea with Twitter. Great job, CM!

    Hi you have a lot of great advice and I’ve used your site as a reference many times (saved me!). But I sent your template to myself through a mail server and your mobile changes are not working at all. On my iPhone 4 it’s just the regular desktop version squished into half the screen. I have found this issue not only with your example but with the few other top and current references I have found. There still seems to be some mysterious “trick” out there that I haven’t been able to find to properly scale and render for the mobile device. Is there an update missing from the template? Thanks for sharing your knowledge I’ve learned a lot.
