Twitter's making its experimental homepage visible to all visitors who aren't logged in, the company has confirmed to BuzzFeed. This new landing page shows potential users what the website is all about at a glance. See, it might be your favorite social network, but a lot of people still don't "get" it -- for instance, we'll bet more people in your family use Facebook instead. In its latest earnings report, Twitter revealed that it only has 316 million monthly active users, whereas Facebook almost has 1.5 billion (yes, with a B) by now. The company's likely hoping that displaying celebrities' accounts and tweets based on popular topics can entice curious folks to just give in and sign up for an account.
