If you're a Twitter.com user, you may have been caught off-guard earlier today with the complete redesign of the Web site.

Though the UI has been redesigned, Twitter.com's keyboard shortcuts still work with a few new additions. To get around the Twitter redesign without worrying about where everything went, try these shortcuts:

Actions
n : new Tweet
r : reply
t : retweet
m : direct message
f : favorite
Enter : toggle detail pane
l : close all open tweets (new)

Navigation
j : next Tweet
k : previous Tweet
space : page down
/ : search
. : refresh Tweets
? : display keyboard shortcuts

Jumping
g then h : home
g then p : profile
g then r : mentions
g then m : messages
g then u : go to user
g then f : favorites
g then c : connect (new)
g then d : discover (new)
