iPhone Users Get a Whole New Twitter Profile

iPhone users received a whole new Twitter experience last Thursday after the site’s update to its profiles. In what Twitter calls “our biggest update to profiles to date,” users will see new design and emphasis on bios and photos.

As long as you have iOS 7 or above on your iPhone, you will be able to see the updated profile. Your bio will be immediately viewable on Twitter. Previously, users had to navigate to their bio because the timeline was what showed up first.

Even easier, those with iOS 8 can retweet, favorite, and follow directly from the push notification. This would definitely make interacting easier — assuming, of course, that Twitter’s iPhone users were able to upgrade to iOS 8. Many of Apple’s iPhone customers had problems with the upgrade because it requires a whopping 5 GB of space.

Twitter wasn't the only social media site making changes last week. Facebook also announced it was tweaking its News Feed algorithm to make our feeds more enjoyable. Users have been complaining that the content shown to them is sometimes a day or two old and no longer relevant. Facebook has promised its latest update will fix that problem.
