Twitter launched an ambitious new design Wednesday, designed to keep tweeters and their followers on the site longer and entice advertisers to splash their cash on reaching the fast-growing number of Twitter fans.

The new Twitter look will also make it easier for fans to view photos, videos and other media content.

Twitter is turning its text-messaging website into a multimedia showcase by adding a new pane that will make it easier for its 160 million users to check out photos and video.
The redesign unveiled Tuesday may compel people to linger on Twitter’s website for longer periods and come back more frequently, making it a more attractive advertising vehicle.
“We are still figuring out all the new possibilities,” Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said in an interview.
The facelift, expected to roll out around the world in the next few days, splits the website into two panes. One is devoted to the 90 million messages, or “tweets,” posted on Twitter each day, and the other features the images contained within the text. Until now, most links to photos and video have been displayed on other websites or browser tabs.
oung & Rubicam (Y&R) announced today that SunGard, one of the world’s leading software and technology services companies, hired Y&R’s San Francisco office to help create its recently launched brand advertising campaign.
With the theme “Look for us wherever the mission is critical,” the global campaign launches this month with print and digital elements and aims to raise the visibility of the SunGard brand. The ads focus on four real-world scenes — a network operations center, a college classroom, a financial markets trading desk and an emergency response situation — that embed in the background and foreground the letters that make up “SunGard,” suggesting that even though SunGard’s presence is not always apparent, SunGard can often be found in the situations and places where the mission is critical.
