New Twitter Profile Style Surprises Many

September 18th, 2012

A new Twitter design scheme was unleashed this morning, leaving the internet reeling in surprise.

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo first unveiled the updates during morning news program The Today Show: a surprising move given the site’s generally tech-savvy userbase.

“Today’s changes are all about bringing that personality forward. More media forward, more photos forward,” Costolo said. “So it’s much easier to see these media experiences and flip through them.”

The new changes fall into the same cover-photo style as facebook and Google+. While reactions so far have been varied, celebrities, brands, and individuals have been nevertheless scrambling to adopt the new updates.

What do you think? Do you like the new look for twitter, or is it too much like the other social networks that already exist?
