Twitter starts rolling out a new profile look

DENVER - A change is coming to your Twitter profile. The company announced the new design will being rolling out to users Tuesday.

7NEWS first reported on the changes in March when it briefly and unexpectedly appeared on one of our employee's accounts. The announcement Tuesday explains the some of the features we identified as notable questions during that test.

The size of the tweets, for example, was not initially clear. Twitter explains that the size is relative to the amount of engagement that individual tweet received.

At the top of the profile pages, bigger header photos will now be accommodated. During the test, we observed our photo was apparently stretched to fit.

Other features will allow users to pin one of their messages to the top of their profile and filter the tweets they see when viewing the timeline.

So far, only a small group of users have the new look. Notable examples include First Lady Michelle Obama @flotus, ABC TV star @kerrywashington, musicians @JohnLegend and @weezer.
