If you’ve been active on twitter lately you may have noticed the major changes that happened on the micro-blogging platform. Since it has been founded, in 2006 twitter has distinguished itself from other platforms by revolutionized the way people communicate on the internet. It imposed that people should only deliver the essential of their message by setting up a 140 character limit and so it reinvented the wheel.
Now in the last few days twitter has implemented a new design for user’s profiles and it’s nothing of what we are used to. Instead of the regular plain customizable profile we we have a facebook-like page with the main picture and bio scaled to the left and significantly more real estate dedicated to the header photo. The new look has a greater focus on photos and content cards.
Also this change in looks brought a new category with it, called “out on the profile” , where you can view who you are following, followers, favorites and lists.
Major brands had not skipped the opportunity to promote along with this changes and had almost immediately responded by redesigning their pages (in the photos:Samsung and Kia)
If the new profile hasn’t reached you yet it’s not to worry about because the changes will be slowly implemented to users in random manner so your turn will come up, only with more followers we hope.
