CLONING TWITTER

Replicate Twitter feed UI in your own app.
June 2022

 😻 This is a new monthly challenge created by MoureDev. He will review and give feedback to some proposed solutions from the community in one of his Twitch livestreams

Most of the time we don't realize how important the UI and UX are in the apps we use every day. Would Twitter, Spotify or Slack have become what they are today without having taken so much care of the user interface? Probably not.

For years, Twitter has been very selective with its features, and has focused on providing its users with a great user experience. The quality of this can be one of the main key points for our app success.

The goal of this challenge is to replicate the visual layer of the main Tweets feed in your own app. Do you dare to clone the Twitter UI?

WHAT YOU'LL CREATE

You will create an application that represents as accurately as possible a fake Twitter timeline, showing different types of tweets as examples. 

The more faithful to the original design, the better, although it's not necessary to display all current Twitter functionalities. The aim of the challenge is mainly focused on having the ability to know how to create UI based on an existing design.

For this challenge, you can clone the web, iOS or Android version of Twitter.

The feed should display tweets of the following types:
  • Text tweet.
  • Tweet with an image.
  • Tweet with up to 4 images.
  • Tweet with GIF.
The data to be displayed doesn't have to be real. You can define your own test set with tweets containing images, texts, likes and so on.

Each tweet can contain the following functionalities:

  • Display the number of likes, retweets or comments.
  • Represent hashtag or mentions (without interaction).
  • Represent links (with interaction and opening in a browser).
  • User photo, name, date, tweet body and action buttons.
  • Up to you to choose other extra functionalities. For example:
    • Tweet with video or poll.
    • Tweet detail to show comments.
    • Image detail and zoom.

EXTRA POINT!

Every Twitter user knows that there are some key points of the application that could be improved, even Elon Musk! 😜

So, if you want to challenge yourself a bit more, try to improve Twitter’s application on these features that you guess could be room for it. You can focus these improvements just on the UI, or even the UX and user flows.
