Twitter's Facebook style Profiles are now available for all

But redesign hasn't gone down well with social network's users

MICROBLOGGING WEBSITE Twitter has rolled out its new-look Profile page to all users globally, which has received criticism for its similarity to Facebook.

Twitter unveiled its profile redesign (below) earlier this month, and it allows users to opt for a larger profile picture and header photo, as well as bringing the options to pin tweets to the top of a Timeline and to more easily filter tweets.

Twitter said, "Moment by moment, your Twitter profile shows the world who you are. Starting today, it will be even easier (and, we think, more fun) to express yourself through a new and improved web profile."

"The new web profile lets you use a larger profile photo, customize your header, show off your best tweets and more," Twitter explained.

The new-look Profiles are now available to all users of the social network. To get it, go to your Twitter profile, where you'll be asked if you'd like to try it. Clearly aware of the criticism the redesign has received, largely due to its similarity to Facebook, Twitter will let you try it before you decide to adopt it.

It seems that many users have been quick to switch to the new Profile, but that's not to say that they are pleased with their decision - as you can see in the below tweets.

To give the new Profile a spin, go to Twitter.com. µ
