Tumblr launches quicker, Twitter-like post creation for a smaller and more streamlined experience

Following its move to embrace iPads and Android tablets last month, social blogging platform Tumblr has redesigned the way users create new posts.

Previously, users were taken to a new page to create a post (based on text, photos, quotes, etc), but now users never need to leave their Dashboard at all to create. Instead, a pleasant animation quickly dims your Dashboard and a new post submission form pops up.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

According to Tumblr, this change is a “step toward making the Dashboard a smaller and more streamlined experience.”

Compare that newfound ease to Twitter’s experience:

Despite the fact that creating new posts on Tumblr was never actually a difficult process, it’s noteworthy that the new experience is essentially on par with Twitter in terms of speed. The change should be rolling out to all users now.
