Twitter  has started to roll out its new redesign to fewer people and gradually it will roll out to public probably by coming week. New redesign is a little more fancier with new features and some say its almost look-like Facebook new design and to which I agree too. Micro-blogging website initially tested it in February, new features to include large headers, pinned & highlight tweets option as well as three column layout that has timeline view, rich media panel and mention & reply tab.

According to the official blog post announcement:

What’s new about the new you? The new web profile lets you use a larger profile photo, customize your header, show off your best Tweets and more. Here are main features:

  • Best Tweets: Tweets that have received more engagement will appear slightly larger, so your best content is easy to find.

  • Pinned Tweet: Pin one of your Tweets to the top of your page, so it’s easy for your followers to see what you’re all about.

  • Filtered Tweets: Now you can choose which timeline to view when checking out other profiles. Select from these options: Tweets, Tweets with photos/videos, or Tweets and replies.


I must say that am already impressed with upcoming  features and redesign despite of its resemblance with Facebook, much clearer showcase of profile information and followers list at left side, news feed in center and trends section at right side of the page gives it a proper social network look.  The new design update and its features looks a lot more exciting than its previous layout with large size display picture, big header image which enables more ways to showcase brand’s/individual’s profiles.

According to the blog, it rolled out to few people and eventually it will be available to all twitter users. However, people who have just joined twitter will be able to see new design.

Are you impressed with the new twitter redesign and its features?
