Trending: Testing the new breed of bike sharing: We pitted Spin vs. LimeBike on the streets of Seattle

We’re pretty heavy Twitter users around the GeekWire offices, so when the company rolled out a new redesign yesterday we had to check it out. I’ve been playing around with the “new Twitter” — both on the Web and on my phone — and I am still trying to get my head around it.

GeekWire’s Todd Bishop is too, but he was disoriented by the Twitter mobile app.

“Oh man, I don’t like this,” he said. “It’s like they took everything I knew and hid it someplace, and challenged me to find it.”

Twitter says the simplified look is designed to “make it easier than ever to follow what you care about, connect with others and discover something new.”

I am not quite sure yet, and find some things like the @replies hard to find and the new Tweetstream positioning a bit disorienting . The new service is being rolled out in waves over the next few weeks. If you’ve received the update, what do you think?
