So Twitter has been whispering a redesign since February and it seems that the social network is about to unveil its new look, which looks a tad familiar to us.

The company announced the change today saying that “moment by moment, your Twitter profile shows the world who you are”.

So the network decided to make that a little easier and more fun apprently.

“Starting today, it will be even easier (and, we think, more fun) to express yourself through a new and improved web profile,” the company said in a blog post.

The idea is to create a whole new you, a you that is much more visual — you know kinda like Facebook. Though Twitter isn’t the only social network with this visual obsession, Google Plus when it redesigned its look also emphasized the bigger cover image.

According to Twitter, “the new web profile lets you use a larger profile photo, customize your header, show off your best tweets.”

Here are main features:

    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.

The new profile is only available to a few users now but will soon be rolling out to all of Twitter.
