Twitter Profile Changes Are Coming — Here’s What You Should Know
Have you seen Twitter’s new look yet? Everything is getting bigger, but is it better?
The changes include a larger profile photo at the top of your Twitter page, customizable headers, the ability to show off your best Tweets and more. We’ve listed some of the notable changes below:
Your Most Popular Tweets Are Highlighted
Tweets with interaction will appear slightly larger, so your best content is easy to find. Notice the larger font from one tweet to the next:

You can pin tweets to the top of your page, making it easier for your followers to see. Notice the pinned-tweet icon in the top-left corner:
Photos are getting more social with photo tagging, which lets you identify the people in your photo. You’ll also be able to include multiple photos (up to four) in a tweet:

Filtered Tweets and More
You’ll be able to choose which timeline to view when checking other profiles. Select from tweets, tweets with photos/videos, or tweets and replies. There are some other small changes, like the who-to-follow and trending sections being moved from the left side of the page to the right.
The new profile started rolling out on Tuesday to a few users, including Jeff Foxworthy, Channing Tatum and the Michelle Obama, and will continue to everyone else in the coming weeks. New Twitter users will begin with the new profile.
What do you think of the new changes? Looks a lot like Facebook, doesn’t it?
