Twitter CEO Dick Costolo announced on the Today Show Tuesday morning that Twitter is launching a new look that allows users to highlight photos and media. The new design is reminiscent of Facebook’s Timeline, and provides users with a more personal and visual feel. The most conspicuous feature is a dominant photo in the upper right that takes up some of the screen real estate once held by tweets.
