Facebook’s update to timeline angered quite a few people out there – but now Twitter is following suit with a similiar design that shows of your history of tweets combined with your photos, and a more prominent “header photo”. This new look is meant to give a better impression of a user’s overall profile compared to the previous text heavy design.
The update is not web only – it is being rolled out to Twitter‘s own mobile clients to iPhone, iPad and Android. Photos also appear in the tweet timeline on all of these platforms, which makes us wonder about bandwidth usage. Users can swipe between these photos left and right, just like Facebook’s app. Users can still specify their background images as well, but this wont show up on mobile client apps.
You can go change your header image right now, but some prominent accounts have already switched on the new profile view.
