How to switch back to the old Twitter layout

switch back to the old Twitter layout

Twitter recently changed the layout and interface of their website and some people don’t like it. The criticism Twitter is getting for the nre layout is understandable because there are still a few kinks and the change is significantly drastic; it takes time to get used to.

Prior to the new Twitter layout being mandated, users were able to try it out beforehand by changing their layout to the legacy layout. They were also able to easily switch back to old Twitter; However, that is no longer an option on Twitter.

Luckily, we were able to determine that Twitter added a cookie called rweb_optin and configured it with a data value of side_no_out. To switch back to the old Twitter interface, this cookie will need to be deleted.
