Hey! Now everyone can have a new Twitter Profile

Earlier in Sept 2012, Twitter introduced a new profile and users then have the option of whether or not they would like to try to new profile.

So what is Twitter's new Profile?

If you are using New profile on twitter you can upload a header photo that acts like the header of your profile and generally your own profile pic appears in the centre of the header photo, here's a glimpse at my twitter profile.

Ensuring the header photos are within the restrictions set by twitter, i.e. Recommended dimensions of 1252×626 and Maximum file size of 5MB you can upload any photo as your header photo once you are a "new profile" user of twitter.

Starting from Dec 12, all twitter users will be forced to use the new profile, well not exactly forced, but the new profile will automatically be implemented over your existing twitter profile.

Hence if you don't upload a header photo, it will show a simple grey shaded area.
