The year of the image on social media marches on.
This morning, Twitter unveiled a new layout for its profiles featuring a much larger header image at the top, similar to what Facebook has done with its pages and profiles.
Here’s what the “Today” show Twitter profile
looks like with the new layout:
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo appeared on NBC’s “Today” show to make the announcement (which the company had hyped on Monday).
In a blog post this morning
about the new profile pictures, Twitter Product Manager Sachin Agarwa added:
“New profiles also help you get to know people better through their pictures. Photo streams now appear below anyone’s most recent Tweets on iPhone, Android and iPad. Swipe through the stream to see the photos other users have shared or tap any thumbnail to view their photos in fullscreen.”
The social network also announced a new Twitter for iPad app as well as updates to its iPhone and Android apps.
