Twitter is getting a whole new look.

The popular social media platform tweeted on Tuesday that "a new twitter.com is coming." Changes include new tricks, such as quick keyboard shortcuts, a new emoji button and upgraded trends.

If you received an opt-in message, you can try these changes now.

The social media platform has been upgrading its features recently. In December, Twitter rolled out a simpler way for users to switch between a display of tweets chosen by an algorithm or the most recent tweets from accounts they follow. 

Twitter didn't immediately respond to a request for further comment.
