Those new Twitter profiles we told you about? The ones that bear a striking resemblance to another social network?
After months of testing and beta use by elite tweeters, the radical new look is now available to the masses. The changes include a larger font, bigger profile pictures and a wider cover image, as well as a new “pin” feature, enabling sticky tweets atop your page.

We’ll keep you updated on effects and reaction.
