Twitter testing a major profile redesign

It seems like Twitter is testing a major redesign to the profile page. Mashable assistant features editor Matt Petronzio notice the changes to his profile page on Tuesday. The profile picture and bio is now on the left side with a lot more space dedicated to the header photo.
Perhaps the biggest change is the timeline. There will be no more vertical timeline and the new design seems to give more focus on photos and content cards.

It is not uncommon for major Social Network site like Twitter to quietly roll out new features and design to a small group of users before tweaking and rolling out to the rest of the users.
While the new redesign looks great, I wish Twitter won’t remove the vertical timeline. Timeline are meant to be displayed in a vertical manner. And I’m also not a huge fan of giving more focus to photos. I still prefer the simplicity of 140 characters. Let’s hope this is not the final version that Twitter roll out to all users.
