Navigate the Twitter redesign with keyboard shortcuts

Can't figure out where everything went with the Twitter redesign? We'll show you the keyboard shortcuts to use instead of clicking around blindly.


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

Though the UI has been redesigned,'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:

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

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

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)
