Twitter has just announced a major platform design overhaul, simplifying elements and insuring consistency across twitter.com, TweetDeck, and mobile apps. They’ll be rolling out the new design over the “next few weeks” but here’s how to get it now.

To get the new Twitter design immediately simply download the latest version of the official Twitter app for Android (v3.0.0) or iPhone (v4.0). Once updated, sync your tweet stream to associate the latest Twitter app with your account, instructing Twitter to load the new design on twitter.com.

This trick currently only works on Android and iPhone versions of the Twitter app. Let us know what you think of Twitter’s latest changes?

Meanwhile, here’s the official introductory video to the redesign:
