What has been optional for some time now, is coming to an inevitable end. Similar to when Facebook 86′d their old design, Twitter is ditching the old to make room for the new. Your twitter page use to be boring and dull [or not like Facebook?] so you now have a header to decorate. Hit the jump to find out when it’s all going down.
Twitter seems to be hoping on the Facebook band wagon with their new design move. Users haven’t been forced to make any changes as of yet, but Twitter took to their blog today to make that very announcement. The new UI should make it easier to see recent activity and browse pictures with a swipe. As of October 12th either have your header set and ready to go or you will be automatically changed to the default gray header. Below is a demo video on how to edit your header. Enjoy !!
