Most everything built at Twitter is designed by watching how people use the service in new and interesting ways and incorporating those ideas. #NewTwitter, Twitter.com's biggest change in its four-year history, called for iterative research that allowed designers and developers to quickly experiment with wide-ranging changes. Trammell & Karina will share how existing patterns affected the current design of Twitter, what worked (and what didn't work) with #NewTwitter's early research methodology, and what they're doing to better understand how folks discover what's happening.
