Excellent idea, imho. It's one of the major things twitter could benefit from.

Twitter is testing a major profile redesign that's very reminiscent of Facebook and Google+.

Mashable assistant features editor Matt Petronzio spotted on Tuesday a huge update to his Twitter profile page, with the main picture and bio scaled to the left and significantly more real estate dedicated to the header photo.

The revamped tweet stream is also a departure from its signature look. There is a greater focus on photos and content cards. It moves away from a strictly vertical timeline too. Twitter Tests New Home Profile Page Similar to Facebook and Google + [mashable.com]

Agreed, could use some changes. I rarely use their web ui anymore. Maybe that will change now.

I'm with you Rumbas. As long as TweetDeck is functional I rarely make it to the actual Twitter site.

It does look a lot more like G+, which I prefer to the Twitter and Facebook layouts.

I agree with Bill here. I also liked the Tweetdeck for when I was posting media. We've seen Facebook move to a similar Google+ adjustment, and it makes sense that most social media sites would do the same.
