Another day, another Twitter page redesign. No sooner have we just got over the last incarnation than they have got restless and changed it again. As I often say to Facebook when they bring out their latest redesign, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

The new design has a lot of space (which will be good for claustrophobic tweeters), and a lot of white. The biggest selling point, as far as Twitter is concerned, is the fact that you can have a much bigger header image, stretching right across the page, a much bigger profile photo, and being able to highlight your best tweets.

For example, here is singer John Legend‘s profile :

And here is actor Zac Efron‘s :

The designs are not bad. In fact, they are the exact opposite – they’re really good. Apart from the enlarged pictures, what else is new? Well for a start, popular tweets will appear on the page with a slightly larger font so people can see them better. You can also pin a tweet of your choosing to the top of the page, which is interesting. This is supposedly so you can define yourself to your followers.

“Hi, I’m Mark, a character of 140 characters”.

The last change is a set of filters for when you are looking at other Twitter profiles. You can now choose from tweets, tweets with photos/videos, or tweets and replies.

Twitter is “pulling a Google” and releasing this new design in stages. So if you don’t see it yet on your profile, don’t wail and gnash your teeth in despair. You will get it soon. Enjoy it while it lasts – I’m sure the Twitter design team is hard at work on the next profile design.

    As soon as I resize and redesign my and my husband's Twitter headers, wallpaper, etc., to fit the last changes so they look okay on both hand-held devices and regular computers, they (adjetive deleted) change their design yet again?

    This is not a big deal for me, because I do graphic design,. But, lots of folks pages are looking bad because they don't know about resizing images, etc.

    I've already had to do this a couple of times with past Twitter changes.

    Just because they pay people to play around at Twitter, doesn't mean they should.

    ARGH!

      As I clearly stated in the article, Twitter is releasing this design to users on a gradual basis. So if you don't see it just now, just wait, and eventually you will get it.
