Twitter has launched its new profile design for all users - and yes, it looks a lot like Facebook.

The new profile pages feature larger profile and header images, more prominent placements for photos and the ability to pin Tweets to the top of your page.

You can enable the new design simply by logging into Twitter via the web and clicking the pop-up notification that should arrive on your main page.

Twitter said in a blog post:

Get the new profile now. If you need some creative inspiration for your new header image, select one of the custom headers from our library.

It also published this list of what's new:

  • 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.
  • Your Twitter profile shows the world who you are. We look forward to seeing what that means to you!

Do you like the profile? Are you not that bothered - or do you never log in via the web anyway? Let us know.
