Twitter is now rolling out a huge redesign of their user’s profiles on Tuesday (8th April, 2014). Twitter was testing this new looks in last February – this year, adds different important user information and many new features — and it looks quite similar to Facebook profiles.
The new profile of Twitter includes a larger user photo (automatically cropped and resized) and a customized header image (One can use almost 1500X1500 resolution images). In this segment, Twitter highlights one’s tweets that have the most engagement & replies, slightly larger than the other tweets. You can also pin one of your tweets to the top of the page just like the Facebook Page. More over, you can now choose which timeline to show / view when you are checking out a profile page of some user. You can see all your tweets, photos and videos only, or just your tweets and the replies.
The similarities of Twitter’s new user profiles to Facebook’s profile page – almost looks the same. There’s a square size profile image in the top left, and a large “cover” photo (1500X1500 pixel) on top portions of both pages. The only difference of the new Twitter Profile and the Facebook Page is that – Photos are placed below of your followers, whereas the Facebook has its other way around. It’ll be really interesting to see what the Twitter users think of this new re-design.
The new profile design is already live for many users. Even I have recently update my profile with the newer version. Hopefully the rest of users will have their brand new profile very SOON!
