Twitter’s New Profile – What You Should Know

By Nextrio on May 30th, 2014 Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmailby feather

Social media provides businesses with an interactive and attractive form of advertisement. Using websites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter can help you reach out to customers and share facts about your products and services. Jump into social media by learning about Twitter’s new profile.

New Banner Image

One of the most noticeable changes found in the new Twitter profile is the larger banner image. The banner is not a totally new idea to Twitter profiles, though the former image was much smaller and did not necessarily call too much attention to itself. The new banner covers the entire top portion of the page, making it similar to Facebook’s profile pages.

Pinned Tweets

Your Twitter bio allows you to share what you think is most important about your company. Unfortunately, some users skip over the bio section and go straight to the tweets. The new Twitter profile has a pinned tweet feature, allowing you to keep your favorite tweet at the top of your page so users will see it as soon as they visit.

Different Sized Tweets

Another noticeable change comes in the form of tweet size based on popularity. After switching to the new profile, you will notice that your most popular tweets become larger than less popular ones. Popularity is based on favorites and retweets so that new users can easily find the tweets that other users have enjoyed the most. This is a great feature for companies running contests and promotions on Twitter.

Following List

Twitter users have always been able to see who other users follow, but the new profile makes this feature more visible than ever. Each profile has a “following list” that features a small collage containing Twitter pictures of users you follow. This is similar to LinkedIn profile pages that show collages of connections between users.
