A new look for Twitter

Twitter has recently rolled out a new look for web profiles along with some new features. These include:

Jumbo Header Image

The look of the profile header image is being compared to that of Facebook with recommended dimensions of 1500×500 (maximum file size of 5MB). You can update your header image from the settings icon in top drop down menu.

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.

Once you pin the tweet to the top of your Twitter profile page, it stays at the top of the page and the expanded tweet with the image shows.

When you click on the “More” button on a tweet, select “Pin to your profile page,” and that tweet will be the first thing your site visitors see. Pinned tweets are a small way the new Twitter wants you to express yourself. They ask you to pin a tweet 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.

Below is our new Twitter profile with a image.

You will possibly see more images used with Twitter activity now. If you are creating images to attach, I recommend a size of 876 pixels wide by 438 pixels high.

 

This is an example of a tweet with an attached image.

Twitter started rolling out the new look on the 22 April 2014. Here is the link to get your account switched over NOW.

What do you think of the new Twitter look and features? Have you got any good tips to share?
