Here’s what Twitter said on its blog about the update:

Starting today you can make your presence on Twitter more meaningful with new Twitter profiles. Upload an all-new header photo on mobile apps for iPad, iPhone and Android or, and the same image will appear whenever anyone views your profile on the web or these apps. You can upload your header photo, which appears above your Tweets, to express yourself instantly, anywhere.

New profiles also help you get to know people better through their pictures. Photo streams now appear below anyone’s most recent Tweets on iPhone, Android and iPad. Swipe through the stream to see the photos other users have shared or tap any thumbnail to view their photos in fullscreen.

While the header photo keeps your profile simple and consistent on iPhone, iPad and Android, you will also still have an additional photo – a background photo – on Upload a background image to complement your header and profile photos.

Twitter’s new header photo option clearly seems to be inspired from Facebook’s cover photo option. Wonder what is the difference between the combination of profile picture + cover photo on Facebook, and profile picture + header photo on Twitter!
