This morning was little different for regular twitteraties who surf Twitter through web. Twitter changed its primary web font for user profiles to a sleeker and narrower look. The new font is Gotham Narrow SSm which was Helvetica Neue earlier.
Though there is no blog update on the same but there is a tweet from official @Support account which confirms the same –
Twitter’s mobile web interface on smartphones and tablets continues to use Helvetica Neue, Arial or the system default sans-serif font for now.
Many Designers have already started using Gotham as their base fonts. Gotham has gained a lot of exposure in recent years for it’s clean, modern look rivaling Helvetica. Gotham typeface signaled change because it
was distinct from Helvetica and was new to the eyes of the public. What is now ironic is that its use in Obamaʼs campaign has imparted its theme of change and hope back to the typeface.
