Twitter is making it a little bit easier for you to show your followers who you are.

This week, the online social networking site rolls out new profile options for some of its more than 240 million users. The new Web profiles give Twitter users the ability to post larger profile photos, customize their headers and show off their best Tweets. The new Web profile features include:

  • Best Tweets: Tweets that have received more engagement will appear slightly larger, making the best content easier to find.
  • Pinned Tweet: Users can pin one of their tweets to the top of their pages, making it easier to show followers what they're all about.
  • Filtered Tweets: Now users can choose which timeline to view when checking out other profiles, selecting from three options: tweets, tweets with photos/videos, or tweets and replies.

Starting this week, a small group of existing users, as well as all new users, will have access to the new profile options. In the coming weeks, Twitter will expand the new features to all users.

To get an idea of what the profiles look like, Twitter encourages users to check out some people who have already begun using the new features, including First Lady Michelle Obama, television star Kerry Washington, musician John Legend and boxer Floyd Mayweather.
