Twitter Launches New Profile Features

Twitter is launching a new look for profile pages, and some new features to go with it. The design features a large image across the top of the screen, even bigger than your Facebook cover photo.

New features include Best Tweets, Pinned Tweet and Filtered Tweets.

Best tweets are those that have received more engagement. They will appear a little bigger on the screen than the others. Twitter says the idea is to make your best content easier to find.

Pinned Tweet is a feature that lets you pin a tweet of your choosing to the top of your page. Twitter says this makes it easier for followers to “see what you’re all about.”

Filtered tweets let you choose which timeline to view when looking at other profiles. You can look at Tweets, Tweets with photos/videos or Tweets and replies.

The features are now available to a small group of people, but will be coming to everyone within weeks. Check out Kerry Washington’s profile to get an idea of what you’re in for.
