Twitter announced a massive redesign that hopes to make Twitter less confusing for new users. The new design simplifies Twitter’s features by consolidating them into separate categories. Downloading Twitter’s new mobile app will give you early web access to the new design. In other news, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that the number of people texting while driving has doubled since last year. Despite state efforts banning the practice, 20% of drivers admitted to sending messages while driving. Last year, over 3,000 deaths were attributed to distracted driving. And finally, if you catch yourself watching television or movies and asking what else that actor has been in, Hulu’s newest feature will save you from guessing. By activating the face match feature, you can hover over an actor’s face and find out who they are and what else they’ve been in.
