As reported a few weeks ago, Twitter will be issuing a new update to its interface. May 28 is the day which will see all Twitter users having the same new profile page, and a huge amount of users are already contesting the update. All pages will incoprporate larger profile and header images, new timeline views and the ability to pin a noteworthy tweet.
Despite Twitter's push for people to opt in to the profile switch before it officially rolls out come the end of May, everyone still seems to be hanging on. The initial announcement in Feburary had faced a huge amount of backlash, and Twitter's unrelenting stance on the adoption of its new features is sparking even more outrage. The overwhelming criticism is based on the new layout's eyebrow-raising similarity to the design of another social network's profile pages - Facebook. A lot of users have argued that they take to Twitter because it is so different to Facebook, not because they want another clone. Whether Twitter will respond to this widespread outrage - and if they do, how they'll respond, - we will have to wait and see.
