The pulse of the planet
In recent leaked internal documents, published by Techcrunch, twitter stated that it's aim was to be 'the pulse of the planet'.
Today's redesign of the home page takes them towards this: clearly laid out with top trending topics for the hour, the day, and the week, with a great big search box - about four times as big as Google's - letting you search for anything else.
It looks very good, and importantly it's available for members and non-members alike. It's now easy to see the traffic figures climbing far higher, and also to see them monetising this in lots of ways (paid search, contextual links).
Oh - and they're recruiting. "We have a lot of work to do. We need your help"
