Mastodon also change their interface to include a dropdown bar

Is it a new tendency?

Wow, the similarity is impressive.

Was the Discourse user menu heavily inspired by another software (like their chat design is by current popular chats)??

On your screenshot, it’s very similar, but on desktop, it’s not the same. It’s a “regular” side menu like we see on many websites, and the purpose is de facto quite different from the Discourse’s user menu. Each icon links to a specific page:

Yeah it coincidentally looks the same, but the functionality is different. Twitter’s web navigation works similarly on narrow screens.
