Twitter for iOS updated with redesigned profiles and notification actions

It's the first major change under Twitter's new head of product

Twitter updated its iOS app today with a new look for profiles that places additional emphasis on pictures. The redesign puts your bio, which was previously a swipe away, at the top of the profile. And it puts tabs for your tweets, photos, and favorites directly underneath. Twitter calls it their "biggest update to profiles to date," though it's not quite as radical as that makes it seem. But it is the first major product change since former Google Maps director Daniel Graf was hired to lead Twitter's product team in April.

The update also gives Twitter for iOS features that make use of new capabilities found within iOS 8, which came out yesterday. Push notifications from Twitter are now fully interactive in iOS 8, letting you retweet, favorite, follow, and reply.

The new profiles are available to anyone with iOS 7 and above. They are rolling out slowly and may not be available to everyone all at once, a spokeswoman said.
