Twitter's latest changes include a profile redesign which, much to everyone's “surprise,” looks a lot like Facebook's. The social network announced the launch of the new profile on its official blog, saying that users' new web profile will be much improved, thus making it easier for them to express themselves. Twitter has tested out profile redesigns before, in an effort to improve user experience.
Twitter's header photo looks a lot like Facebook's cover image, stretching over from one side of the page to the other.
Twitter has given a great deal of focus to users' profile images, and images that generally appear throughout the feed. The same applies to videos as well.
This new Twitter feature emphasizes the most important tweets, by greatly enlarging the font of the tweet. The more popular the tweet is, the more retweets and replies it has, the greater significance it’s awarded in the feed.
The “Pinned Tweet” feature is exactly the same as the one on Facebook. If users want to give prominence to a specific tweet for a longer extent of time, they may do so by pinning it to the top of their Twitter feed. This feature is especially convenient for businesses that want to promote their products longer.
This feature allows users to literally filter which tweets they see on their feed. So, users can filter and set up to see only recent tweets, or tweets that include images or videos.
Twitter's new profile redesign is only available to users of the desktop version of this social platform, and only for new, or recent, users. Twitter says the change will hit all the rest of Twitter accounts in the upcoming weeks. The company doesn't say if or when these changes will come to Twitter's mobile version. It is, however, common knowledge that most users access Twitter through their mobile devices, and rarely their desktops.
