Social Media | 4.8.14
A huge makeover is finally being released on Twitter. Rumored back in February and now officially today on the social media site’s blog, Twitter is undergoing major changes to its look that’s all too familiar with profiles you’d might find on Facebook and Google+.
The new look features a larger profile photo aligned to the left-hand side with plenty of prime real estate at the top for a customizable cover photo. Your wittiest tweets with the most engagement will be displayed slightly larger than the rest and you’ll now have the ability to pin your important tweets to the top of the page. The new site redesign, overall, has stepped up to become more visual, further moving away from the social media site’s former text-only ways.
Twitter will even let you choose how to view a user’s profile page. You can see all tweets, tweets with images and videos only, or just tweets and replies. Under the user’s profile photo, you’ll see basic information, photos, and friends.
These changes are only effective for a select group of Twitter users for right now, but will soon be rolling out globally within the next several weeks. If you can’t really wait for it, you can always create a new Twitter account and your profile will be defaulted to the new look. It’ll be interesting to see how Twitter users will respond to the new look. Mashable has already reported feedback from several Twitter users this morning, who already have strong opinions about it. What do your thoughts on the whole new look?
