Those rumored changes to Twitter profiles aren't just rumors anymore.  Twitter is officially rolling out redesigned web profiles, and if you're on Facebook-- well, they might look familiar.  Many users have already caught onto the similarities, and some users who were really into the old Twitter profile look aren't loving it.

It's important to note that if you use Twitter on a mobile device, you won't see anything different.  The changes are ONLY for web profiles-- so if you visit someone else's (or your own) Twitter profile on the web, that's where you'll notice a difference once the changes are rolled out.

David Bellona, a designer for Twitter, published a blog explaining the new changes on Tuesday.  Bellona writes that the new features will make it "even easier (and, we think, more fun) to express yourself through a new and improved web profile."
