Twitter's Latest Web Profile Redesign Now Available to All Users

By April 23, 2014

Follow me on:

Twitter recently introduced a very different looking web layout for user profiles on the web, which only rolled out on a few selected accounts for popular celebs and other high profile individuals. Today, it's available to everyone.

Besides the giant header image and content that now spans across the whole page, there are a few other new feature tidbits you might want to know about that weren't previously available on the old web profile layout:

  • Your best tweets will be highlighted on your profile by appearing in a larger font, reflecting the fact those tweets received the most retweets, favorites and replies.
  • You can now pin specific tweets to the top of your page, making it useful to promote a specific message even when you want to keep on tweeting.
  • Filtered tweet timelines are now available, so you can choose whether you want to view a user's timeline of just their tweets, their tweets with replies to other users, or tweets of just videos and photos.

You can find out more about the new web layout here, and you can even use one of the default header images provided by Twitter if you don't have a personal one on hand.
