Twitter Changes User Profiles

On Tuesday, April 8, Twitter announced they will be updating their site with a whole new profile design for Twitter users. This new web profile may look familiar to frequent social media users, as it takes a Facebook-like approach.

The look of the profile won’t be the only thing changing. There will also be new features accompanying the redesign. Three of those features highlighted by Twitter include:

  • Best Tweets: Tweets that receive more engagement will look slightly larger than other tweets on a user’s page, making a user’s “best content” easier to find.
  • Pinned Tweet: Users will now be able to pin one of their Tweets to the top of their profile page so all your followers can see it.
  • Filtered Tweets: Users will now be able to view which timeline (Tweets, Tweets with photos/videos, or Tweets and replies) they want to view when looking at other profiles.

The update is rolling out to a small group of users today, and new Twitter users will get the new profile design. For a look at the new design, users can browse profiles of popular users like Michelle Obama (@flotus), Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather), or John Legend (@JohnLegend).

What do you think of the change?
