Twitter just announced a new feature which allows you to upload a header image. Twitter’s version of Facebook’s cover photo. The new design moves your profile picture to the right side of the screen and makes it slightly smaller. Your header image appears behind your profile picture as well as your name, bio, etc.

Why?

For most users it simply provides a way to add more flavor to your profile. It also puts a bit more emphasis on your recent images which is nice. For brands it provides a way to enhance brand visibility and create a more rich experience for users. With some time and effort the new layout allows for the background image, header image, and profile picture to all be parts of the same branded image. Ryan Seacrest has updated his Twitter profile and takes advantage of the header/profile image combo but leaves out incorporating the background.
