Twitter redesigning webpage to give Facebook-like look
Twitter is reportedly working on a major redesign of its web page that is said to make the social network site look like Facebook.
The all new profile page of Twitter has the avatar photo and biography placed well to the left side of the page, giving a lot of space to the header photo.
However, Twitter's magazine-style web layout will only affect the desktop version of Twitter, making the tweets larger,
According to Tech Crunch, following changes, tweets no longer flow vertically in a single column like they do now; instead they spread out with a tile-style layout similar to what one might expect from a Pinterest or Facebook's new Paper app.
Meanwhile Twitter's another new feature offers pop-up notifications with fields for easy replies for direct messages sent through the platform, and similar notices for RTs and favorites, which if merged with other features, will help the social network site don a richer, more complex presentation that offers up additional information.
