Twitter redesign looks like Facebook

Twitter redesign

Twitter has recently unveiled its latest redesign of user profiles, which the social media service has been testing since February. On the surface, the first thing you would notice on the latest Twitter redesign is that the profiles look like those on Facebook.

The now-larger user photo is placed on the left-hand side, while the header image is laid out like FB’s cover photo. You can even pin one of your tweets to the top of the page, much like how you could highlight certain posts on Facebook.

User can also choose how they want to view a profile page, whether it is all tweets, posts containing photos and videos only, or just their tweets and replies.

Just like on your Facebook Timeline, below the profile photo are the basic information about the user, followed by sections for photos and friends. The difference, however, is that on Twitter the images are placed below the user’s followers. (Facebook has it the other way around.)

The new Twitter redesign is now live for a select number of celebrities, including Floyd Mayweather (pictured), Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, and John Legend. It will also be available to new users, while the rest of the Twittersphere will have to wait for the new profile page to roll out over the coming weeks.
