You can get Twitter's new Facebook-style profile now

A few weeks ago, we revealed that Twitter would soon be changing its users’ profiles so they look very VERY Facebook-like.

Up until now only a select few users have been able to play around with the brand new design, but today you don’t need to be Michelle Obama to get nice things, because it’s available to everyone.

All you have to do is log-in via twitter.com and you should see an option to edit and then “turn on” the new design. If you don’t see the option then click this link and you can activate it manually.

Once you’ve got the new design you can make a few cool changes, like adding a huge new cover photo (you ideally need it to be 1500 pixels X 500 pixels so it doesn’t look too stretched) and pinning your top tweet to the top of your profile.

You’ll also notice there are all kinds of crimes against fonts taking place on your new profile, and the basic idea is that the tweets with the most engagement are the biggest, but it kinda hurts our eyes and makes very little sense as you’re scanning through them.

Let us know what you think of the Twitter profile redesign in the comments below.
