If you've been jealous because your friend's Twitter page looks different--and newer--than yours, fret no more.

This afternoon, Twitter announced that it has finally completed its rollout of the so-called "New Twitter" that began with its unveiling last December.

Now, all Twitter users who go to the social networking service's Web site, or who get to it on an iPhone or Android device, have access to the latest version of the tool. That means everyone can now take advantage of new tools that allow you to select tweets to expand in order to view videos, photos, retweets, favorites, and more; easily see who is following or @-replying you, or favoriting or retweeting your tweets; see Twitter results that are tailored to your interests and centered around your geographic location; and embed tweets in blogs and Web sites with a single line of code.

The new Twitter also allows all users to see branded Twitter pages.
