People are saying it kind of looks like Facebook and Google+ and I think we certainly agree. Twitter have now launched a completely new profile layout which will be rolling out to all accounts within the next few weeks with all new accounts adopting the layout immediately.
You have a larger profile photo (and profile header) and many will like that fact, along with the ability to pin in your favourite Tweets to the top of your profile allowing browses to get an understanding of what you are all about – In a business world Twitter say that the new layout is better for businesses allowing them to promote offers easier and more effectively.
Direct from Twitter website: 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.”

So, keep an eye out for when your account makes that swap over to the new layout to make sure that your new image is correct and professional as many businesses will have previously had branding bespoke for Twitter.
