Twitter's recent redesign has been followed by yet another update to the site's aesthetics. In a quiet change on its website, Twitter revealed that it had abandoned Helvetica Neue in favor of Gotham as its font family.

 "Words don’t just hold meaning; they communicate by their very form. We primarily use the Gotham font family: elegant and direct, stylish but not exclusive. Putting well-designed words in our product enhances the user experience," Twitter explained.

The Tobias Frere-Jones-designed sans serif typeface has made its way to users' profile pages but has not yet reached notifications or the home timeline.
