(Newser) – Starting today, Twitter is rolling out a redesigned profile that will eventually hit all users—and basically every report on the redesign is noting the similarity between the new profile pages and Facebook's profile pages. Among the changes: There's now a full header photo (think Facebook's cover photos) and a larger profile photo that appears (and overlaps) at the lower lefthand corner of the header (just like on Facebook). Users will also be able to "pin" certain tweets so they always appear at the top of their feed, Venture Beat reports. The idea, as the designer puts it, is followers will be able to see "what you're all about" right away.

And tweets will be adjusted in size relative to how much others have engaged with them—the more popular ones will appear larger, The Verge reports. When viewing someone else's profile, you can use a filter at the top of the profile to see just tweets, tweets and replies, or tweets that include photos or videos. All new users will get the new profile when signing up, and everyone else will have it within a few weeks. Engadget notes that a few VIPs, including Channing Tatum, already have the new design if you want to check it out. (Read more Twitter stories.)
