New Twitter homepageJust hours after social networking website Twitter rolled out their new homepage (pictured to the left) the company was forced on Tuesday to revert back to the sites old homepage setup, citing technical difficulties.

The “New Twitter” homepage was suppose to mark a turning point for Twitter after co-founder Evan Williams announced just last week as he took a different role in the company that “the dark days of imminent technical meltdown are over.”

After several hours the new homepage did return for many users, however many Twitter users are still seeing the old Twitter homepage (myself included, even after clearing my browser cache).

After the launch of the new homepage many users were seeing different Twitter feeds than the one’s they signed up for. In some cases users were also seeing regional languages other than their own.

After disabling the new homepage by reverting to the old familiar setup Twitter tech support released the following message:

“We’ve temporarily disabled #NewTwitter. Our engineers are working on re-enabling it and will update you shortly.”

If you’ve been experiencing Twitter problems since the transition today, feel free to share your experiences in our comments section.
