Social media platform Twitter is testing a revamped Profile page to show more information, according to researcher Jane Manchung Wong who shared the screenshot of this new user interface.
On visiting the Profile page of any user, currently, four tabs are visible: ‘Tweets’, ‘Tweets & Replies’, ‘Media’ and ‘Likes’. This might get replaced by ‘About’, ‘Tweets & Replies’, ‘Collectibles’ and ‘Media’.
The company is planning to merge ‘Tweets’ and ‘Tweets and Replies’ into one single tab. This unified tab will show both Tweets & Replies by that user. To filter Tweets it has two options: ‘All’ to show both tweets & replies along with retweets and ‘Tweets’ to only view the tweets and not replies.
A new ‘About’ tab will have all the information and details about the user that he/she has made public. ‘Collectibles’ is also a new tab. The company appears to be removing the ‘Likes’ tab which shows all tweets/replies that are liked by the user.
‘Collectibles’ tab was first spotted in September last year. It will allow users to show off their Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Users can tap on linked NFTs to get it’s magnified look and a page will be linked for reading the details on NFT.
This redesign is currently under development and the final design might be different based on the user’s feedback. There is no information about its rollout or availability to beta testers.
