As you can see, the morning program’s profile page has been tweaked to add more photos including a large banner image (featuring Matt Lauer and crew) positioned above follower stats (1,355,062-and-counting) and a feed of Today‘s tweets. Other changes include a more prominent display of the photo stream mid-page, with larger images to catch the eye.
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo showed off the redesign in a much-hyped segment that followed another piece profiling the San Francisco-based company.
The updates are being implemented across the brand’s website, mobile app and iPad app, which was announced Tuesday along with the changes.

You can upload your header photo, which appears above your Tweets, to express yourself instantly, anywhere.”
Facebook profiles recently underwent a similar tweak with the introduction of banner-esque “cover” photos.
