Twitter's Golden Ratio

Ever wondered why DaVinci's paintings are interesting??? Why pyramids attract a huge number of people??? Why a design is very attractive?? Why somebody's face is attractive???
Its all because they follow the Golden Ratio.

Two numbers are said to follow Golden Ratio if the ratio of the sum of the two quantities to the larger quantity is approximately equal to 1.6180339887. It can also be defined as the ratio of two large fibonacci numbers. Its believed that anything built using this ratio is aesthetically pleasing. Today this ratio is used in the field of mathematics to build perfect figures, to build attractive designs, buildings, paintings, and to create melodies and this list is a never ending one. Anything that is built using the golden ratio is considered PERFECT!! and being perfect was what Twitter's creative director Doug Bowman chose.

The new page layout of Twitter follows this Golden Ratio. The ratio of several boxes on the twitter page are adjusted to follow the golden ratio.

You still don't like the page view?? Then it has to be the browser or the monitor which is disturbing the page format. Set everything right and im sure you will love it.
