Hey Twitter, Facebook called and wants its profile page design back. See, Twitter has just started rolling out a new profile design that looks a lot like Facebook's.
The new profiles will see a big cover photo (like Facebook), a three-column layour (like Facebook) and a list recommending people you might know/should follow (like...you get the drift).
Twitter breezily announced on its blog: "Starting today, it will be even easier (and, we think, more fun) to express yourself through a new and improved web profile."
Your most popular tweets will now be larger and Twitter calls them your 'Best Tweets' and if you choose, you can pin your Tweets to make them even easier to find. There's also a new option to filter Tweets by Tweets, Tweets with media like photo and videos or the popular Tweets and mentions.
If you wanted another Facebook...
So far a handful of big-name Twitter users have already had their profiles updated including singer John Legend, actor Channing Tatum and band Weezer. Here's a list that Twitter's handily compiled so you can ogle and know what to expect.
- Actors @zacefron and @channingtatum
- French TV host @nikosaliagas
- Australian Football League @AFL
- First Lady Michelle Obama @flotus
- Brazilian singer, guitarist, and songwriter @gilbertogil
- Boxer @FloydMayweather
- TV star @kerrywashington
- Musicians @JohnLegend and band @weezer
New users to Twitter will find themselves automatically upgraded to the new look. We're not sure where Twitter is going with this but you have to admit the new design is easy on the eyes.
