How to get back old Twitter interface | Social networks

Users who have not adapted to Twitter's new web layout can return to the old look with simple, free solutions. The GoodTwitter extension, available for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, retrieves all features of the other interface, such as the command menu in the top bar, the right Trending Topics column, and the tweets and followers counter right on the start page. Those who use Firefox also have an additional method to get the previous version back. Check out the following tutorial for options to return to the old Twitter.
