Twitter gets a makeover

Twitter CEO, Dick Costolo, today announced the new design updates for the social media platform on the Today Show this morning.

"What we've heard over and over again from our users is they want to bring more of their personality to their profile pages. So today's changes are all about brining that personality forward, more media foward, more photos forward, so it's much easier to see the media experiences and flip through them.  We've also announced today a complete overhaul of the iPad design is all about letting people flip through photos and videos more easily" ~Dick Costolo

The biggest change is the ability to have a "header" photo, very much like Facebook's cover photo. The layout of the header photo varies depending on hardware.

The design changes to Twitter, like the Timeline changes to Facebook, will be great for businesses and individuals to represent their image in a much more pleasing, attractive way.
