Twitter, the popular social media site goes for a profile redesign on users and brand pages with the introduction of ‘header photo’. The new cover photo resembles that of Facebook or Google+ cover photo which appears above users Tweets.

Twitter profiles get a redesign - brings in Header Photos

Users can upload an all-new header photo on mobile apps for iPad, iPhone and Android or web-based, and the same header image will appear whenever anyone views their profile on the web or these apps.

According to Sachin Agarwal, Product Manager Twitter, “the new profiles also help you get to know people better through their pictures. Photo streams now appear below anyone’s most recent Tweets on iPhone, Android and iPad. Swipe through the stream to see the photos other users have shared or tap any thumbnail to view their photos in full screen.”
