New & Improved Twitter Profiles are on the way...5 Tips to Optimize yours.

The Twitter redesign has a lot of similarities to Facebook, not a bad thing. I for one, am glad they're rolling out a new look and feel for all us Tweeters. 
Their changes are being rolled out over the next few weeks, so if you haven’t received the new profile yet, be patient. 
TIP: New users will start with the redesigned profile, so if you don't have the patience to wait, create a new account and give it a try. 

Here's the scoop on what's to come:

  • Larger profile photos. 400 pixels by 400 pixels, the same aspect ratio as before but with larger dimensions, so smile and say Tweet!
  • Customizable header image. This main image spans the width of the browser, you can now upload a 1500 pixel by 500 pixel image. Your current header image might fit, just make sure you have enough resolution so it looks sharp.
  • Best tweets. Tweets with the most engagement will appear in a larger text size inside your updates stream.
  • Pinned tweet. Just like Facebook, you can pin one of your favorite tweets to the top of your profile page.
  • Filtered views. When visiting someone else’s profile, you can choose how to view their tweets: tweets only, tweets plus replies, or tweets with photos or videos.
  • Pinterest-style grid view of your followers, who you’re following, and your visual content.
TIP:  If you have a tweet that you want the world to see, do not start the tweet with an @ symbol. Twitter recognizes this as a reply to a larger conversation. Adding a period in front of the @ will solve that problem though. HAPPY TWEETING!
