By Ricky on September 15th, 2010 

Earlier today, Twitter started rolling out a completely revamped UI. It has some amazing features that should make a worthy competitor to the Twitter clients out there. New features includes a two panel interface, clear retweet and favorite labels, real name alongside the twitter handle, embedded media etc. In short is moving towards becoming more of a web app rather than just a simple website. However, one of the most important feature that have been introduced is the keyboard shortcuts.

Here is a list of them:


f - add a tweet as favorite

r - reply to a tweet

t - retweet

m - send a direct message

n - make a new tweet

esc - close the overlay window


? - list the shortcuts (there are a few hidden shortcuts not listed here)

. - refresh and back to the top

j - move to the next tweet

k - move back to the previous tweet

space - page down

shift + space - page up

If you know of any other hidden shortcuts, do let us know.
