Twitter keyboard shortcuts and how to turn off New Twitter interface

We had, some time back, posted about the new Twitter interface which was revealed few weeks back. The new Twitter interface now seems to be rolling out slowly to all the users and it will take time to roll out for everyone. This was officially confirmed by the Twitter authorities.

Meanwhile, here are some keyboard shortcuts for the New Twitter interface. Personally I feel that, this new Twitter interface is a challenge to all those third party feature-rich Twitter clients.

Keyboard shortcuts are always a time saver and these will definitely will help you to be productive while tweeting.

Here is the screen shot of Keyboard shortcuts for the New Twitter interface :

Turn Off New Twitter interface and Switch back to Old Twitter

If you’re already using the new Twitter and want to switch back to the old Twitter interface, then click on the ‘leave preview‘ option which is provided at the top of your new twitter interface.

By clicking on this option, you can switch back between the old and new Twitter interface whenever you need.

Are you using the new Twitter interface ? Or waiting for the new Twitter ?

    “Leave preview”? What happens now that it’s implemented? There’s no way to go back? Lovely.

    Twitter needs to KISS – keep it simple, stupid.

    the ‘switch back’ bar option doesnt seem to be appearing, anymore?

    the a/c i had opened on ‘old’ now defaults to the new setup, which I REALLY dont like!

  3. I can leave a F-ing “?” because shift ? brings up the F-ing menu

  4. what

    I CAN’T type a f-ing question mark because when I hit the shift key and then the “?” key to do it, it brings up a sh*tty short cut menu for me too!
    wtf Twitter?
    Why so random?
    And who the hell has the correct answer to this problem because CNTRL+ALT+Down Arrow Key isn’t doing it for me either.

  5. Same thing happening to me. Driving me batsh*t crazy.

  6. what

    Have you figured it out yet?
    Well for those who haven’t the fix that worked for me is to push Ctrl+F and then the escape key.
    Don’t push all 3 keys at the same time, there needs to be a pause before you hit the Esc key.
