Twitter servers a new shiny UI to Chrome clients using mobile.twitter.com. Firefox users still get that old antiquated UI. (See screenshots)

Thanks for filing -- according to https://twitter.com/alunny/status/727519754915713025, it should be fixed on their server (not sure about ETA for shipping).

I think we should move this to Tech Evangelism, seems the bugs they ran into have been resolved (so it's just a UA sniffing thing at this point).
Component: General → Mobile
Product: Firefox for Android → Tech Evangelism
To follow up: got an email from one of the Twitter mobile engineers today and they were running into a flexbox "bug" (Bug 958714, where unfortunately the spec allows our behavior *and* Chrome's behavior). But dholbert gave them a workaround which they'll apply.

They're still concerned about scroll perf and I'm trying to get them to file a bug on that.
