Twitter has launched a complete profile redesign on the web, featuring a photo-focused layout with a more Facebook-like cover photo, this redesign will roll out to all users over the next few weeks, but new users will get the look immediately.
Detailed in Twitter’s official announcement, designer David Bellona shares that the new Web profiles will feature a larger profile photo, a header (cover) photo, and the ability to pin your favorite tweets to the top of your profile.
Navigating the tweet streams of others now offers a few more options, including the ability to see just tweets with photos and videos attached, or seeing tweets and replies.
Pinned tweets and filtered tweets are also main features of the new design — just like Facebook. As for the new design’s similarities with Facebook and Google+, all three social networks now feature cover photos, overlapping profile photos, and a three-column layout.
