It looks like Twitter is taking a page from Facebook with the redesign of its profile page. Some of the similarities include a more photo-focused layout with more space for the header photo and a left-leaning shift to the main picture and bio. This is a whole new look for Twitter, but it’s one seen every day on Facebook and Google+. Mashable.com offered a look at Twitter’s similar social style.
We should first make it clear that this is a test, and only a test. Twitter frequently tries out new features and design updates on a small group of testers before rolling out tweaks to all Twitter users.
In this test, Twitter has moved away from a vertical timeline layout and is now centered on content cards and photos. Running horizontally beneath the header photo is the count for tweets, followings, followers, and favorites, along with a new category that Twitter is testing for photos/videos.
Speaking of header photos, this Twitter test has enlarged these photos to 1500 x 500 pixels from the current 1252 x 626 size. If the redesign is rolled out, users with will want to switch their photos to avoid looking stretched.
