On April 8, 2014, Twitter officially announced on their blog – “Coming soon: a whole new you, in your Twitter profile“. What’s new about the new twitter profile? The new twitter 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.
If you’re new to Twitter, you’ll start in with the new profile. In the coming weeks, the new profile features will be available to everyone.
From all indication, the roll-out seems to be in Nigeria already as I got mine today
