Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo said, “We’ve rebuilt the app from the ground up to make it fast, beautiful and easy to use. Tweets come alive with in-line expansion and support for photos, videos and web site summaries. Like Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android, this new version of Twitter for iPad also supports new profiles and photo streams on profiles. “
The most notable difference in the design, is a large header image running across the top which has similarities with Facebook’s cover photo. Additionally, your avatar now will be in the middle of this new header rather than being tucked in the corner, again having similarity with Facebook in that designers can integrate these photos to work together.
The main purpose of this update is to engage customers with and to showcase your brand, at the moment these changes are opt-in but eventually every twitter profile will change to the new design.
In order to activate the new header, visit your twitter settings and click the design tab, then scroll to customise your own, where there will now be an option to change header then just upload your image.
